Walk two blocks along Southampton Street to The Strand and the restaurant is on the corner to your right. We walked in without a reservation and were seated right away. Of course, it was only 5:30 p.m. Throughout the evening, though, more people came in and as the dozen or so tables upstairs were full, people were sent downstairs.
For starters I had the beef consomme and my husband had the Buffalo Mozzarella with tomatoes and balsamic vinegar. And for the main courses we had mushroom risotto and Veal Milanese. With this we had a nice bottle of Italian white wine. Everything included, the total charge on our credit card statement came to $114.67. The only thing we sort of found fault with was that the mushrooms tasted and looked like they were out of a can, although the waiter assured us that they only use the freshest of ingredients. The service was good and the upstairs has a nice ambience to it.
