a lunch at Ruvo- Long Island
We ventured up to Long Island this morning to meet with a handful of wedding vendors! After tucking those away, we had a wine tasting at Pindar and settled in at Ruvo for lunch. The space is divided into a few narrow rooms and one open plan for private parties. Arranging ourselves at the bar, we took in the peppering of couples with thick Long Island accents.
Absolutely ravenous, we immediately requested an order of the Maryland style crab crakes with braised lentil salad and chive- whole grain mustard sauce. While they had great portion of filler ingredients, the crab flavor was present and the braised lentils well- paired.
For our mains, Chris selected the chicken parma sandwich on crusty baguette with greens, myself the Diver scallops pea shoots, carrot-ginger sauce and duck risotto. Despite being a bit overcooked, the scallops were massive and tasty. The duck risotto was the star- a gorgeous balance of creamy thick risotto with buttery duck.
The venue is definitely a consideration for the rehearsal dinner!
