Just to warn you....
We went tonight to the new My Mary's in Westerly. We had friends that recently went and said it was soso, but we wanted to give it a try.
There was hardly anyone there... The basic salad had a salad dressing that was flavored with way too much vinegar. At this time of year I find it amazing that you can't have great tomatoes, but the ones on their salad were barely ripe.
I ordered their Penne Ala Vodka. I asked to have it without the ham,and to add fresh mozzarella. The pasta came out with this oily, soupy, liquid sauce that did not resemble a vodka or any sauce I have ever seen. They put 4 big slabs of mozzarella, thank god I added that because it sort of saved it! To make matters worse, my meal was $21.00 plus $4.00 for the mozzarella. My husband got shrimp scampi and he did not like it at all.
I have to say, as a person who loved food and loves to cook, I feel the word "Chef" should not be used as often as it is. Our search continues....
On a good note in Westerly, Up River Cafe, the calamari!!!
