Do you ever wonder what eating a campfire would taste like?
I believe it would taste exactly like Pulino’s burnt marshmallow gelato. You have not died and gone to heaven. I did say burnt marshmallow gelato! I could actually taste charred wood. I might have even gotten a splinter it tasted so real. I don’t know how they do this, but my mind was boggling all over the place. The gelato was served with a Nutella Torte with a very coarse salt on top. Boy did that really make the flavor pop! Give me any excuse to eat salt and I will! You won’t find it on theirs website’s menu, but trust me, you’ll want to go tomorrow and get it. Run! What if they take it off the menu! Or I eat it all!
I went there for my Dad’s birthday dinner and we ordered a nice assortment of things on the menu, as we were 9 very hungry jews. Notable dishes included the Crispy Pork Belly and The Mussels served with pepperoni (sounds nasty but dayaaaaaam were they good – my Aunt can attest as she was drinking the leftover broth with half of a mussel shell). The Pulino’s Meatballs were great, as well as the Shrimp with Pumpkin Polenta. You all know how I feel about Polenta, but when you add pumpkin, I just can’t be stopped. We had a few brick oven pizzas as well, but I couldn’t choose my favorite as they were all just delicious. Why pick one when you can have all 12 on the menu?
If you are a fan of Pastis, you will like this place, as it is owned by the same people and the decor is very similar. Trendy vibe, delicious food, long waits – feels very familiar.
The good stuff is always worth waiting for.
