La Logge is tucked away in the atrium building off the main
piazza in Citta di Castello, and they have quietly been developing a fine
restaurant. We’ve gone a number of times now and have impressed with their
creative menu, execution, presentation and obvious love of what they do.
The three young proprietors have created a chic, modern and
inviting space housed inside a gracious vaulted ceiling dining room. Now that
the cold weather is upon us, a very warm crackling fire welcomes the hungry
diner. The wine list is a
careful selection of Umrian wines and a few choice regional Italian wines. And
by choice, I don’t just mean expensive, I mean they are good choices.
Recently the fall menu included a number of white tartufo
selections, and even though this is not a good truffle year in Umbria, their
truffles were pungent and delicious. Memories of their steak covered in white
truffles will sustain me through a long truffle-less winter in New York. And just for the record, a salad with truffles isn't bad either!
Last Saturday night was the one year anniversary party for
Le Logge and we were happy to be there as the good food, good wine and good
cheer flowed. Photos of everyone gnawing away at fabulous bistecca will be kept private!
So, to Arlind, Natascia and Michele: Auguri!! Complimenti! E
ci vediamo nella primavera!
