We get to Caiola's 2-3 times a year, and as the local hounds know, there's almost always something new and flavorful. Last night was no exception: first and craziest is the best deep fried onion ring you've ever tasted (light, crunchy outside, smooth inside)…with Gorgonzola and "bacon jam". The latter is chunky bits of crisp bacon welded together with a fruit of some sort. Just bring me a full plate and I'll skip the entree! The second was a nice bit of innovation: "crab pudding." Think bread pudding rich with crab, a very healthy piece with a lovely light cream sauce.
Everything else was delicious as usual.

    Have yet to go there, but you certainly moved Caiola's up my to-try list.
