Feast: Cinquecento (500) and the BBB

Some (most) days, all I want out of life is a big bowl of bolognese (BBB). I want the noodles to be silky on the outside and chewy on the inside. I want the sauce to taste creamy, even though it is not made of cream. I want the flavors to be blended to a point where I know there are different kinds of meat, but I can’t tell where one ends and the other begins. I want parmesan cheese to have been involved from the beginning, layered throughout the dish and then showered on top. I want to sop up the sauce with bread, and have it taste like butter.  I want to want the whole bowl, and then want more.

Cinquecento, newest member of the Aquitaine Group, has mastered the BBB. I’d go back for bowl after bowl, not to mention the lux vitello tonnato, the lemony kale salad, and the delicate vitello milanese, all of which I also tried, all of which were excellent but eclipsed by the BBB.
