Why I Love Aperitivo
Restaurant Name: Aperitivo
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Aperitivo is one of many Italian restaurants in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Its menu, with one or two exceptions, is nothing out of the ordinary. It is not gourmet. It is not particularly romantic. It is not edgy, or hip.
So why do I love Aperitivo?
It is cozy and it is consistent. It is excellent prices (between $10-12 per entree). It is hot, satisfying pasta on a cold night. Or it is a cold, fizzy drink at an outdoor table in the summer. It is oozy lasagna. It is shrimps nuzzled against creamy, salty white beans. It is creamy goat cheese sauce enrobed gnocchi with arugula. It is the waiters remembering your name. In short, I love Aperitivo because it is the perfect neighborhood restaurant.
And, for nights when its just too cold and you are just too lazy, they deliver.
Try it and see if you love it too.
