Lunch at Paneantico

I rarely get out to Bayridge, Brooklyn; something that's a total mistake on my part.  I love the friendly neighborhood vibe, the gorgeous views of the Verazzanno Bridge and the incredible little bakeries and restaurants that line the streets.

One of these cute little places is Paneantico, a small cafe that serves up big Italian hero's, fresh baked pizzas and an absolutely amazing house salad.  This bowl is filled to the brim with lettuce, cucumbers, eggplant, red peppers and an entire ball of fresh mozzarella.

Everything is then doused with a homemade Balsamic dressing that is simply delicious.  You can order either small or a large...this happens to be the small you see above and I ended up taking about half with me home for dinner that night.

However I did save room for one of their delicious baked goods...a crisp chocolate cannoli filled with thick creme.  I could definitely get used to this Bayridge lifestyle.
