Back into the Wolf's Mouth

I took Maraca and her colleagues the other day to Soho, the area was a bit more crowded than usual, my idea was to have fish and chips in Randall & Aubin but the queue was massive so instead I took them to one of my favourite Italians in town, Bocca di Lupo

Bocca di Lupo
Ordered a Barbera wine, and then decided which delights to get, tagliatelle with kid goat ragu, linguini with spider crab datterino tomato and basil, finferli and Parmesan risotto to start. The goat ragu was excellent, the nice goat flavour. The spider crab was a masterpiece, great flavour, perfect execution, the delicate crabmeat with touches of tomato and basil play perfect. Then the girolles and Parmesan risotto was perfectly cooked.

For main we went for a scottadito, parmigiana di melanzane, and finally a tagliata. The scottadito was excellent, a grilled, fatty, lamb chop, perfectly cooked, nice flavours. The parmigiana was the best dish of the night, the baked aubergines with tomato and mozzarella, just perfect. The grilled bone in sirloin was superb, rosemary, balsamic vinegar, rocket and parmesan, everything in complete harmony.

Great Italian meal the Lupo never disappoints. 

Wolf reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Summer of George” 

Raquel Welch: Hello, Sidney! No, no I told you I don't want to do that! If you bring it up again I will feed your genitals to a wolf! Kids! You're still here? 
Kramer: Well, I Ms. Welch I do need to talk to you about a little problem regarding, eh, your performance 
Raquel Welch: What kind of problem? 
Kramer: Well, it seems that due to the vagaries of the production parameters of this fragmenting of the audience to the cable television, carnivals, water parks 
Raquel Welch: Out with it! 
Kramer: Well, you're fired because you don't move your arms when you tap dance, you're like a gorilla out there I've got to go
