After a book signing at Centuries and Sleuths Book Store, we looked for a place nearby for lunch. Caffe De Luca's door was open. We liked the cozy atmosphere and welcoming staff. We each ordered the crab cakes and were delighted with the presentation and taste. Served on a bed of greens with capers and a yummy sauce, the crabcakes were plenty to eat. However, we spotted the Italian custard on the dessert menu and my Italian friend twisted my arm. I forget the Italian name, but the custard was wonderful -- drizzled with a bit of carmel and a few strawberries.
My share of the lunch, $20, was pricey for me, but I payed it gladly because it was delicious.
