I finally liberated my yoga mat from the studio in Woodley Park. It had been sitting there forlorn and neglected while I hibernated through winter. The lovely surprise was seeing one of my former Georgetown Yoga teachers leading the Ashtanga class. Ashtanga's a little like riding a bike. The first few sun salutations felt a bit rusty, but the flowing breath and gentle instruction felt familiar in no time. The muscle pain afterwards also feels familiar. Afterwards I met my boyfriend in Dupont for our first al fresco dinner of spring at Sette Osteria.
Zuppa del Giorno ($7)
Cauliflower and leek with shaved dried ricotta cheese. This was smooth, velvety and complex in flavor.
Rucola e Finocchio ($10)
Arugula and shaved fennel with pecorino and lemon vinaigrette.
Linguine della Paranza ($14)
Linguine with clams, mussels, shrimpand calamari in a fresh tomato sauce. Nice but reserved to my allergy-handicapped taste buds.
Cavatelli all’ Indiavolata ($12)
Cavatelli pasta with spicy Italian sausage, broccoli rabe and pecorino cheese. While the pasta resembled worms, this sauce was a flavorful combination.
Tortino Caldo al Cioccolato ($7)
Warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. A sweet finish.
