A Dinner Out at Velo in Nyack

Irene’s sister, Carol, is in town for her annual December visit. Kris and I met the sisters for a supper at Velo. The food was so good we all decided we need to go back more often. The cocktails, especially, were super. Irene and I loved our Manhattans and Kris’ martini was out of sight.

We all had rich, hearty, wintery food: short ribs and pastas. Irene’s Handmade Ricotta Cavatelli with Sausage and Fennel Ragu and Grana Padano was especially delishy.

Kris and I split a pasta and an entree, and it was a perfect amount of food. Here’s our first course, the Fettuccine with Roasted Pumpkin, Sage Cream Sauce, Ricotta Salata and Candied Walnuts:

Carol and Irene started with a Boston Lettuce Salad with pear and gorgonzola, which was good, but overdressed:

For entrees, Carol got one of my favorites, the gnocchi with lamb bolognese:

Kris and I split the short ribs over polenta. Totally great.

The restaurant, all decked out for the hollandaise:

We ordered one but got four desserts. No, we weren’t complaining! Doughnuts:

A “S’mores” cheesecake with a meringue topping and chocolate sauce:

Two apple desserts, one a crumble and one with puff pastry:

All were great.

And the next day, Carol came over to Sour Cherry Farm to meet Sam.

A grand time was had by all.
