Visitors explore Ybor
Had the Aunt and Uncle from New Jersey in town this week...(they made it clear to one of the servers in a restaurant that they are not considered Snowbirds, but more like Snowflakes cause they are not in Florida for the whole season)...they are 100% Italian, and have never visited Ybor City, but saw it during the SuperBowl.....so we all went to eat some of my fav Italian..Laughing Cat. I cant say enough about this place...the Antipasto was perfect, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, juicy red ripe tomatoe slices and fresh thinly sliced Prosciutto, all drizzled with a tangy Balsamic Vinaigrette....then the meals, Lemon Chicken, Chicken Parm, Eggplant Parm and a special stuffed Chicken dish...Molto Bene...the exclaimed they haven't had such fresh Italian, and tasty in a while..it is really that good! For dessert we walked down 7th Ave(I gave them a history tour) to La Creperia, next door to the Italian Club. Fresh espresso's, and Delicious homeade crepes stuffed with Carmel apples and cinnamon a la mode, and also stuffed with Nutella and Baily's Irish Creme...perfect.
