Birthday dinner at Sasso tonight
Tried a few things there early on: most memorable was a kind of rabbit stew, very Northern Italian, with lots of root vegetables in a delicious, herb-filled broth. Was less impressed with the pastas than I'd hoped to be. I expect the bartending will be good. It's kind of expensive, and it's not hard to spend a lot of money on wine. It is a massive improvement ambience-wise from the hellishly ugly Blackfin.
