Alforno Bakery & Café
I haven’t been able to wait for the new Alforno to open. Spitting distance from my desk, it’s now where you’ll find us most days. My first lunch here was amazing. There were two of us, but we had more than enough for more. The small potato and bacon soup was a meal in itself – hearty and plentiful, and very tasty with excellent freshly baked bread on the side. We split a sandwich of ‘overnight duck confit,’ caramelized onion and truffle aioli. It was sublime and very filling – do bring someone you love to share with you! The beet salad was a huge bowl of marinated gold beets, herbed ricotta, hazelnut and arugula – completely delicious! Definitely to be recommended.
