Vetri for Birtrhday

Made reservations for Vetri for my birthday. Outside of lots of money is there anything I should be aware of?

  1. The wine list is ridiculously overpriced.

    1. There are bottles in the $40-$50 range. Yeah, they're probably $15 in the liquor store, but what are ya gonna do? Definitely get: the chestnut fettuccine with wild boar ragu, the sweet onion crepe (not really a crepe), the spit-roasted goat over creamy golden polenta, chocolate souffle. The only thing I had there that wasn't so hot was a skate Milanese, boring. The cheese selection is nice too. Have a great time.

        In addition, if you are a carnivore and ask Jeff nicely, you may be able to enjoy an unlisted ribeye special the likes of which you've never eaten. May be better than Barclay Prime's Gachot.

        Just let them take care of you, and they will. We usually do an appetizer course, a full pasta course, and 1-2 entrees for two people.
