Utica Greens May Be Headed to Manhattan
My sister recently spent some time in New York City and, while there, visited her favorite restaurant Forlini’s on Baxter Street near Little Italy. While talking to the owner, Joe Forlini, she mentioned that he should put “Utica greens” on his menu. Having never heard of them Mr. Forlini asked her for a recipe which she supplied and off he went to the kitchen. The result?
According to my sister they were fabulous, almost as good as the best greens she had ever tasted in Utica. Almost. Now I’m not certain about this but if Mr. Forlini adds Utica greens to his menu I would say for certain that they would be a big hit in the “Big Apple” and–along with chicken riggies and half moons– help put Utica on the gastronomical map.
