red sauce

There we were in Binghamton, New York on our way to an Elderhostel in Corning. We met M and B at the Best Western Hotel and were off to dinner. I had searched the web and found Little Venice Restaurant to be well reviewed and near the hotel. It is located at 111 Chenango Street, telephone (607) 724-2513.

The specialty of the house was the red sauce and it was special. Good Italian bread on the table and large salads came with each meal. M and B both ordered the same entrée [isn’t that against the rules?]. They had the meatball and sausage parmesan. DW had the porkchop with mashed potatoes and applesauce. I ordered the Parmesan Sampler Platter which contained two meatballs [shaped liked logs not balls!], a sausage and a breaded chicken cutlet covered with melted cheese and drenched in beautiful red sauce. A glass of house red wine [Montepulciano] was the perfect accompaniment to a great meal with good friends. Dinners also included the soup of the day which was split pea and rice. For dessert each couple shared a cannolli.

The winners were: the Red Sauce and the Split Pea and Rice Soup
