Ainslie Bowery is a newly opened Italian joint that has a huge selection of beer.
The place is enormous inside. So big, that I really don’t know how they’re going to stay in business if they aren’t packed out every day.
Anyway, I was excited to try this new spot by us, so my wife and I went last weekend. We started with the rosemary wings and salt and pepper ribs. Both were really great. I preferred the ribs but my wife liked he wings better.
For our middle course, we split the “diavola” pizza. Spicy salami and kalamata black olives on top of fresh mozzarella and a nice tomato sauce. This was a bit too salty, but otherwise good. As you can see, one side of the pie took a little more heat than the other.
The pasta dishes were very good here. We tried the orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage, as well as the pork ragu pappardelle. We both preferred the orecchiette.
For dessert, tiramisu. This was nice. It’s rare for one of these to stand out among so many others in town, but it was perfect.
We will definitely be back to try more.
