The first time I went to Torrisi, I was hooked. Keep in mind no reservations but well worth waiting.

The whole concept of the restaurant is brilliant. I also love the lace curtains on the windows. It's reminiscent of the old school Italian restaurants in NYC from years ago but what is inside is a very modern take on old style Italian cooking. Clever.

The starters are a mixture of antipasti's for the table to share. This is a warm mozzarella made with a cream base and a little olive oil over the top. On the side is garlic bread. I admit that I did not touch the garlic bread but asked for some bread with nothing on it. Truth is the mozzarella was so delicious that it was perfect by itself.

This is a warm seafood salad. I really liked this too. A mixture of seafood in a warm vinaigrette served over lettuce. Wonderful.

A few people didn't want to try this but to me this particular dish is what is so interested about the new breed of chefs. April Bloomfield starting doing this and for that matter so did Mario Batali. Taking pieces of meat that are generally not used, which make them inexpensive, and creating delicious dishes. Lamb Tongue Gyro is the name of this dish. Thinly sliced tongue with a touch of spicy yogurt and roasted vegetables. A modern twist on the gyro.

These crispy spring onions were fantastic. Small spring onions covered in panko and then deep fried with a smoky sour cream to dip them into. Wow.

This was a treat. Small radishes with a sauce on the side for dipping. The sauce was a thick consistency with shaved fish roe. Quite delicious and the radishes must have been pulled from the ground that morning. Even the green tops were good.

Classic Italian restaurants always serve a pasta course. Tonight was ricotta gnocchi with sautéed ramps. These might have been the lightest melt in your mouth gnocchi I have had in a very long time. Buttery, soft, flavorful, just a small incredible explosion in your mouth.

For dinner, there were three options. Everyone orders their own main course but we decided to split everything. This was the fish. Poached black sea bass with pickles green tomatoes, olives and roasted sliced potatoes.

Deviled chicken. A spicy paprika chicken breast pounded and pan fried over polenta topped with greens. Very nice. I love chicken.

The special that evening was a short rib for two. Roasted, taken off the bone and then sliced and served over the bone. Really good and different, as short ribs are usually braised.

Always nice to have a palate cleanser. Grapefruit ice.

I liked the idea of a cookie plate for dessert. Small cannolis filled with cream. Tiny cream puffs and the filling had a hint of bourbon. Rainbow cookies were beautiful with a pistachio flavor. Tiny tarts with a sunchoke savory tasty filling. My favorite was the sugar cookie topped with celery salt. So clever. The mixture of savory salt and sugar just worked.

A great night. I can hardly wait to go back.


How to Break Free of Tech Addiction

In the 1950s and ’60s, smoking was ubiquitous in American culture ­— cigarettes in offices, cigarettes in restaurants, cigarettes on airplanes, and even in hospitals. Yet when we look back at images from that era, we’re shocked that something so obviously toxic was not just widely accepted but actively promoted as the pinnacle of sophistication, not to mention a handy tool for weight management. What were we thinking?

Now take a look around. Where is your smartphone? If you’re a typical American, it’s within 5 feet of you, regardless of the time of day. It may be in your hand while you read these words on its bright face.

Seventy-seven percent of Americans now own a smartphone. (Ninety-five percent own a cell phone of some kind.) The same people who eschew cigarettes because of their health risks might not think twice about driving down a highway at 60 miles per hour with their eyes locked on a tiny screen. We sleep with our phones beside us. They’re often the last thing we see before closing our eyes and the first thing we reach for in the morning.

The average American adult spends more than three hours engaging with his or her smartphone every day.

“The iPhone is only 10 years old,” says Larry Rosen, PhD, author of iDisorder and coauthor of The Distracted Mind. “In that time, we’ve gone from excitement to obsession.”

This obsession comes with significant costs to our health, relationships, cognition, and mood — and at the expense of fully experiencing our lives.

Will we look back someday at our screen infatuation with disbelief, as we do now with smoking, and shake our heads at historical images of restaurant tables full of people staring at the devices in their hands? Or will our captivation with ever-more sophisticated devices continue to blind us to the fact that they aren’t really connecting us to anything but the screens themselves?

Even though our phones are cleverly designed to capture our attention, we can choose how much of our time we give them.
