One of my favorite places to eat in Venice is the very hip, Gjelina. The food is all farmer's market inspired so the menu changes depending on what's in season. And just generally, it's delicious. This weekend I met up with my family and we all got something different.
Heirloom spinach salad with feta and olives.
Mussels with toasty toasts.
Poached eggs on a bed of lentils and cooked frissé.
Whatever this was called: garbanzo beans, israeli cous cous, harissa and just lots of yummy herbs.
I feel inspired to make it all--simple but with complex enough flavors that it really makes you feel full.
