Eggplant with Chocolate: Oh My!

Our friend Sam is in town, so we tried Erbaluce in Bay Village for the first time. Lovely! Amazing to be at a restaurant on a Friday night and be able to hear our conversations!

Food was splendid: we shared two pastas as appetizers: a mushroom lasagnette and fettucine with beets, beet greens, speck, and sage. Both were so delicious and unusual, I wish I'd had my own portion. But then, I wouldn't have had room for dinner -- or dessert. Rack of wild boar with wild grape musto was melt-in-your-mouth tender. The dessert? A traditional recipe from Amalfi:  white eggplant, which has been roasted, then wrapped around ricotta sweetened with honey, black currants, and white chocolate, drizzled with dark chocolate ganache and garnished with saffron marinated oranges. Bellisimo!

Wine and service couldn't have been better.
