A couple weeks back my wife and I were staying at her family’s home on the North Fork of Long Island and we went to aMano for dinner with my cousin and his girlfriend. aMano is a very good Italian Restaurant with an extensive wine list and an impressively large menu. I wasn’t feeling too hungry after a day of wine tasting and hor d’oeuvres on the North Fork wine trail so I went straight to the entree.
My entree was the house made gnocchi with lobster, mushrooms, fava, and truffle cream. I was a little hesitant at first seeing mushrooms in the entreé description, but I thought I would take a chance. When the dish came out I saw it had a large amount of mushrooms in it and I got worried. The amount of mushrooms did not deter my choice one bit and accompanying the homemade gnocchi and flavored with truffle cream greatly satisfied this reluctant mushroom consumer. A fine day of wine and food on the North Fork!
