Enoteca Corsi

Via Corsini, Rome, Nov. 13—
  • Enoteca Corsi, via del Gesù 88, Rome; tel. 06-679-0821
  • AN INCREDIBLE RAINSTORM greeted us on our exit from the Museo del Corso, where we'd seen a show of Dutch painting from the 17th century, paintings on loan from Berlin. No cabs to be had, so we rushed through driving rains to a nearby galleria, through it to a piazza, flagged down a cab, were dropped off at the end of a pedestrian street, waded down it to the other end, turned right a block, then waded another long long block to the Enoteca Corsi, where Hans and Anneke had ducked out of the rain twenty minutes earlier and staked out a table. This online review is close to the mark. I had a bowl of lentil soup that began to take the chill off, then a simple aristo di vitello, rather dry slices of roast veal flavored with garlic and salt. Beet greens on the side: oil and lemon juice. Panna cotta for dessert.
