“You’re going to love their food,” Me said. “Marcony?” He asked. “Absolutely” Me said. Having been there for the first time last night, it was impossible not to be impressed with the specials we ordered and the freshness and flavors of everything brought to the table. The big surprise? The eggplant mousse starter. Would not have ordered it without the encouragement of my dinner partner, a steadfast regular and Marcony fan. It was exceptional in every way.
So too, was the lobster risotto and Dover sole. Marco Pipolo is the owner and visionary behind Marcony and his talents and passion are reflected in a lovely dining room, excellent service and elegant yet unpretentious cuisine. The wine list is, yes, Italian and the choices ably support the menu.
“Really”, Me said, “you would have had a hard time choosing what to order.” “When are we going?” He pressed “I’m ready.” “You always are,” Me replied. (I’m thinking this weekend.)
