I ran 20 miles on Monday, came home, sat around for a while thinking about what I should eat, realized it was too late for most delivery, and ordered Domino's, Brooklyn-style. FYI, 16 inches of pizza is really not that much. I ate half a pizza in approximately seven minutes. At least it had vegetables on it.
Which is more than I can say for the pizza that I ordered yesterday afternoon, at Otto, a small and crispy pie that came topped with a sunny side up egg. To meet my veggie quota, I ordered asparagus with pecorino and English peas with proscuitto and mint. To meet my already-met carbohydrate quota, I also ordered bruschetta with white beans and red pepper flakes. It was a decent afternoon. The pizza was crispy. I can't complain.
Later, it was on to more edibles in Carroll Gardens. We tucked into a cozy booth at Black Mountain Winehouse for some passable nebbiolo, pretty darn good country pate, and weird-but-kitschy-cool fondue. Also on the menu? Salami and lard white bread, a panini stuffed with mayo and mortadella and served with hot peppers and quince marmalade, white bean crostini with warm ricotta, and a tuna nicoise salad. We got experimental with the fondue and my friend went crazy dipping the mortadella sandwich into the hot cheese. I'm pretty sure I got back the calories lost on that long, ambitious run.
