Dinner at Salumeria Rosi

It's been a very busy summer and it seems that my birthday keeps getting celebrated over and over. My hair and makeup artist, Mary Curren, wanted to take me out to dinner in Manhattan and it was suggested that we try Salumeria Rosi located at 283 Amsterdam Avenue (73/74th St.). Cesare Casella, the Executive Chef/Partner at Salumeria Rosi and I have been friends for many years. Cesare successfully opened two other New York City restaurants, Beppe and Maremma, which received rave reviews when he was in the kitchen. Salumeria Rosi is a small neighborhood restaurant and salumi shop, much like what you would find on any street corner in Italy - very authentic and very delicious.
