We did go out to dinner a few times. Far and away the best of those occasions was dinner at Pammy’s in Cambridge with our friends, Nick and Kelsey. This new American Trattoria was alive with energy and full of creative and superb approaches to food and drink.
The place was lively but not overpowering, and the food was marvelous. We enjoyed everything, starting with 1/2 a Negroni on draft and continuing through the three courses and a bottle of Reale Aliseo wine, which Nick imports and which Barbara and I enjoyed during a visit to that winery in Italy last year.
