Tantilizing Torta at Corso 32

I started the night with a glass of Gewurztraminer and their "Breakfast" appetizer consisting of a sunny side up egg, ricotta crostini, wilted greens, house cured lonza, cippollini and parmiagiano.  The crostini stayed very crisp underneath under the deliciously oozey egg. My only suggestion to improve this would be to have less greens, as I noted the more I ate, the more of the sour taste I detected.

Spicy Game Hen

My main was a spicy cornish game hen with heirloom tomato panzanella and pickled zucchini. The main was an absolute feast! A very generous portion of spicy, moist and tender meat, and an irresistibly tasty skin.
Chocolate Torta

The star of the night however was dessert!  I ordered a chocolate torta with hazelnuts and I warn you, DO NOT SHARE. Don't even leave it alone with your dining companions. Mine were ready to pounce on it! The chocolate torta transported me to culinary heaven as it melted in my mouth. It was a to die for, reminiscent of a dark chocolate ganauche as opposed to anything resembling a cake. My dining companions had ordered zeppole  with limoncello, an Italian version of donuts drizzled with a lemon liquor. Although they said it was tasty, the minute I relented and could eat another morsel, they eagerly "assisted" in finishing this coveted dessert.

Dining at Corso 32 the other night was a heavenly experience.

Overall, an amazing meal! I look forward to trying out other items on their ever changing menu. Reservations are highly recommended.
