First Eggplant Parmeseana of the Fall Season

On this cold evening in September -- I mean November, we ventured out and tried Gasparino's on East 6th Street. Yes, the East 6th Street where all the Indian Restaurants are located. But nestled between the dozens of Indian restaurants lies this gem.

We dined on a mixto salad -- very well prepared with just the right amount of balsamic vinaigrette, Tori commented how they included lots of red onions and tomatoes--normally missing from these types of salads. For the main course, we shared a very tasty eggplant Parmesan--tender slices of roasted eggplant, under melted mozzarella -- the sauce was a touch sweet and tangy. Accompanied with an al dente pasta.

We tasted a very big, dry Nero D'Avola. Overall, a tasty dinner for two for less than $40!
