I can still remember the very first time I had Porchetta...that rich delicious sandwich set off an all out pork filled weekend. I remember thinking that this Sara Jenkins lady really knew what she was doing bringing a sandwich like this to NYC. Since then Porchetta has been consistently packed and Chef Jenkins has opened up a second restaurant just blocks away called Porsena, focusing on classic Italian dishes.
We began with a light Spinach Salad dressed with crumbled egg and warm bacon vinaigrette. It was so simple and delicious I almost wished we hadn't decided to share.
