napoli meets urban eats

napoli meets urban eats ...
...only at tidbit bistro

Neapolitan cuisine reflects the influences of the various civilizations that have, over the centuries, controlled Naples and its kingdoms, such as that of Spain and France. The contributions and fantasy of the Neapolitan people has been extremely important in further developing an autonomous culinary culture. Neapolitan cuisine has a balance between dishes based on rural ingredients (pasta, vegetables, cheese) and seafood dishes (fish, crustaceans, mollusks). The dishes presented in this Urban Eats are inspired by our recent culinary journey to Naples and, with the exception of the risotto, are all traditional Neapolitan dishes.

Frittura di Mare

So wish I could be there for the Urban Eats menu!

Reminds me of my trip to Italy -- Rome and south. Such amazing food!
