Eastside Road, March 11, 2013—LUNCH IN TOWN today, exceptionally, with my brother, even more exceptional. Nothing fancy, just a sandwich, a glass of wine, and good conversation.
There are a lot of interesting and interestingly named sandwiches on the menu at this fine place, but I gravitated to the simplest, christened
The Working Class: prosciutto, pecorino, and arugula on day-old ciabatta. Nice.

And then for dinner at home, a fine bowl of home-made soup: broth, chorizo, potatoes, lots of kale, onion, garlic… soup, lovely soup…
