I began with bruschetta: whole wheat crostini with soft goat cheese and julienne of artichokes - delicious!
Andrea also chose croquette with potato and sausage.
We both ordered pasta for our main course. I had gnocchi with broccoli.
I chose semifreddo gianduia with berries for dessert.
After our superb meal, we headed into DC. (I think that everyone knows that I love going into DC.)
We went in search of the Dante statue in Meridian Hill Park and discovered an enchanting new place!
We found Dante -
and a very vibrant park scene!
Drums and drums and drums!
We also found two more statues.

Thanks to Andrea for the gift of a very happy day. Tu sei grande! Tu sei il mio salvagente!
