I met a bunch of interesting and diverse people in my MBA program. Since we graduated, a lot of changes have happened to my classmates. There were engagements, weddings, births and many got new jobs. We tried to meet up before, but Hurricane Irene cancelled plans for a bbq. We tried again and gathered for a late lunch at Carmine's. One couple has been married for a year, the other three couples were engaged, one as recently as that morning; and three had new jobs.
Fried calamari with marinara.
Nicely fried, good flavor and easy to share.
Portobella Mushrooms Parmigiana
Mushrooms breaded and covered in marinara and cheese.
Cheese Ravioli with Marinara Sauce.
Spaghetti and Meatballs
Shrimp Diavolo with Fettucini
In hindsight, we should have diversified the ordering better. The dishes were predominantly red sauce or covered in cheese. They handle large tables well, and the portions are designed for sharing. It was great to see everyone and catch up, and I was particularly happy to hear about the latest engagement.
