From Moment to Moment

This Venice should age well.

And then cannoli, made fresh, filled with sweet ricotta and cinnamon cream, capped at each end by half a poached and candied cherry. I'm given three, eat one, take two to go and am missing the table already before I am even out the door. Missing the food, yes, even though I am no longer hungry, but also missing all the things that food means even as we are eating it. This Venice is not yet quite the best restaurant it can be, but it's so close I can see flawlessness rounding the corner. All that's absent is time, history and a sense of place that isn't a memory of some other place.

But in the meantime, it has moments and it has mozzarella, and until age solidifies Venice in its place, moments and mozzarella are enough.
