Oh, for the Love of Bellini ..!

Il Lido

So there you are at Harry’s bar in Venice..

hanging out with Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis,

and Orson Welles,

and you want to try and fit in with that crowd..

—here’s your ticket.

Order a cool drink and slink right in..

Champagne & Peach Puree. You have arrived.

Il Lido

Ah, the *Bellini.

Not quiet Harry’s in Venice but the crowd was definitely cool.

Tis ciki’s birthday and we are hanging out at Il Lido for dinner. The party people can wait. Besides, it’s good to be fashionably late sometimes.

Foie gras, pasta, an amuse bouche or two..

A Bellini, more Bellini, whoop-de-doo!

We found the foie gras to be burnt around the edges and extremely salty, and the pasta overcooked but apparently you need to say you want it al dente in the first place. Fair enough. Since we were in a rush, I suppose we really need to come back on another occasion to check out the rest of the menu.

Happy birthday to me,

Happy birthday to me,

Footnote: the*Bellini is a long drink cocktail that originated in Venice. It is a mixture of sparkling wine (traditionally Prosecco) and peach purée often served at celebrations. It is one of Italy’s most popular cocktails.
