My friend Lauren's high school friend Meredith (you following?) is now our friend. Meredith got a job in Oakland, so she moved there! Which means we have an entirely new neighborhood to explore.
Lily and I went to visit her new digs and we all walked down the street for dinner. After much aimful (is that the opposite of aimless? We had a direction and a vague idea of where we were going, I think that should count) wandering, we reached a mutually-agreeable dinner destination: Spettro.
Italian kitsch at its finest. I wish I had taken more pictures of the decor, but I didn't want to detract from the fact that we were actually having a fantastic time. You'll just have to venture over there to see the insides for yourself.
I had mushroom ravioli. It was incredible. Just typing this makes me remember the cheesy ravioli filling and perfectly sauteed mushrooms, soaked in some kind of onion and wine sauce. Wow.
Meredith, I'm coming for a visit soon!
