Posto Restaurant on 14th

We had a long day at a work-related symposium on Saturday. Foregoing our normal leisurely weekend morning routine, we were busy from 7:30 am throughout the day at the event. After completing our work-related responsibilities, we ducked out and headed out for an early dinner. We scored a great parking spot on 14th Street and ambled the sidewalks until Posto opened up.

Rosemary Foccacia
Polipetti $12
Grilled baby octopus with chickpeas, yellow pepper and frise.
Super light but flavorful, a nice fresh start to the meal.
Burrata with fried basil leaf and light garlic sauce. $13
This is a phenomenal dish. The silkiness and creaminess of the burrata cheese is outstanding. By sharing the two dishes, we had the best of both worlds.
Paglia e Fieno $18
Egg and spinach fettucini with veal ragu
Spaghetti with shrimp, squid, scallops and light tomato sauce $17
Both pastas were delightful. We shared pastas, eating half of one and then exchanging plates. The veal ragu was very rich and unctuous. The seafood tomato sauce was very light with a perfect al dente pasta. 
We first went to Posto almost two years ago when we first started dating. It was nice to return and see that the food was still as good as I remembered. I hopefully we will return again after we're married and enjoy another special meal at Posto.
