SOOOOOOOOOO, I'll have to wait... Have a reso in a coupla weeks and can NOT wait..... Hope to see you there, NYButterfly so you can suggest the yummiest food fare...(man, i'm sure it will be such a hard decision; i'll have to bring LOTS of food home so I can try one of each thing!!) MMmmmmmm; i'm drooling already :p

Well, I went and had a wonderful time. There were so many choices, my son and I each had an appetizer, an entree, and a dessert, so I got to try several things.
Alissa was there greeting everyone. It was a nice crowd, people talked to each other across the tables.
Amie was there, it was wonderful to meet someone from this forum. She was busy busy serving folks.
Alissa has a sweet tooth. The beet ravioli and the gnocci were in that mold. I also had the less-sweet flatbread appetizer and the "land and sea" which was a lasagne-type dish with mushrooms and a nut ricotta. I'm in the less sweet category though all were excellent.
Desserts: the chocolate fudge cake was amazing, never had anything like it. The "cheesecake" was also terrific.
Enough superlatives?? I hope everyone gets to go. I'll be going again, that's for sure.

Whew! What a night! The opening was great, could not have gone any better! It was so great to meet you, Evegan.... and miss Dharmagirl, I saw that we had to move your reservation and was sooo bummed out, but I am glad you are coming later! I can't wait to serve you!
Everyone seemed pleased with their meals and hopefully the service was up to par ;)
Can't wait to meet more RFT members at Grezzo!!!
It sounds great! Best! :D

WOWEEEEEE!!!!!!!!! FINALLY made it to GREZZO and FINALLY met Alissa FACE TO FACE :D What a fabulous time we had! NYButterfly served us and did such a great job making suggestions and helping us to sort through things, cuz I just wanted one of each item on that scrumptious raw menu!!! Thanks so much Amie and Thanks to you, too, Alissa for being such a gracious hostess!!! Such a pleasure to meet you; I really don't know how you juggle all you do, but what a great opportunity you have here in Boston to really raise awareness of eating RAW..... When we were walking back to our car, we noticed LOTS of empty seats in the surrounding restaurants, but the lines at Grezzo - right out to the sidewalk - says it all!!! CONGRATULATIONS on the huge success Grezzo is becoming!!!
Ok, ok, you all want to know what we ate!!!! We started off with the most yummy Lime Mojito made with kombucha tea and fresh mint---- could not even believe how delicious and refreshing this was!!! VERY IMAGINATIVE :D Then for starters, we ordered the Gnocchi Carbonara - Delicious and tasty dumplings with a wonderful creamy rawmesan AND a very tasty Vanilla Parsnip and tart Green Apple Soup..... (there were two of us, so we shared everything) .....THEN Land and Sea - a tasty variety of mushrooms layered with ricotta and sea vegetables (this was delish :p ) and Vegetable Lasagna with bechamel and breadsticks - crunchy and delicious; the sauce complimented the vegetables so well - Are you drooling yet?????
THEN even tho neither one of us had much room left, we still had to continue (I mean, come on, we're at Alissa's GREZZO!!).... A sample of Chocolate Fudge Cake (OOOOHHHH, SOOOOO DECADENT - thanks, (((((((Alissa)))))))) ..... and two Neapolitan ice cream sandwiches with Ginger Snap Cookies :eek: ........... RAW HEAVEN!!!!
Grezzo was easy to get to, too!! The ride in and out was much easier than we thought and FUN, FUN, FUN!!!! AND don't forget to say hello to NYButterfly (Amie) when you go.... She was so cheerful and helpful; matter of fact everyone was, but still say a special hello to Amie and don't forget to mention your RF screen name!!
THANKS TO EVERYONE AT GREZZO for making our Raw experience so memorable and FUN!!! Much Love and Great Big Hugs to all!!

Alissa, congrats on your new opening. I did not notice so I will ask, how did you come up with the name? I can not wait to get your book in a few weeks.
03-15-2008, 05:58 AM
My guess on the name...
The restaurant is located in the "little Italy" section of Boston (the North End), so Grazzo is raw in Italian.....

Yes, I saw that this morning on the main page, it was a duh moment :)
