A brief report.
Pici had cocktails in Paris last night. The first two on the list.
Bill's bitters, all the way from Santa Fe!
He also befriended the bartender, Max, who introduced him to a tiny-batch Haitian rum made from sugarcane and olives.
Alici had "muffuletta" in Palermo. I have no idea how that differs from New Orleanian muffuletta but am wondering if sesame bread is involved. Will google that when I'm not in an airport.
Pici also had "the best eggplant I've ever had, hands down" at Chez Marianne.
And said that it figures he had to go all the way to Paris to get a good Reuben.
