It’s been quite a snowy weekend out here in The Hamptons. Forecasts predicted only an inch or two of snow, but we ended up with almost eight! Sadly, we had to cancel our reservation to Race Lane last night, but were thankfully able to make it over there today. There was a local band playing live music in the dining room and the bar was hopping. We were starving and ready for some tasty eats by Chef Nimesh Maharjan, starting with a tender venison carpaccio with beets & horseradish and followed by Scottish salmon with cauliflower purée & sautéed kale. You know I had to order a double entree because every time I’m at Race Lane, I have to have the Old School Bolognese! It’s the perfect warm and cozy pasta on an ice cold winter day. I couldn’t finish the whole thing, so I happily had it packed up in a doggie bag for later. For dessert, we each had a sampling of the chocolate tart and hazelnut macarons. It is always wonderful to see Chef Nimesh — a huge thank you to him once again for a delicious meal! After we were full and happy, we got in the car and drove back to Manhattan. That two hour drive made me hungry, so the first thing I did when I got home was bust out the bolognese. Leftovers rock! 😉
