  • My wife and I had a terrific dinner at Dino’s last night. We split the crab cakes and Porchetta (pork shoulder). Both were excellent. We also took advantage of the Monday-night wine special and had a fabulous bottle of nero d’avola.

    MS dined at the Grotto 4/29 using Resy

  • Always love getting dinner and beer @DinoInShaw. So good


  • The Virginia skirt steak, succulent from its marinade of olive oil and rosemary, is accompanied by a racy anchovy salsa verde.
