W52 Ӫ


Because it is new.

Because it is in Central.

Because Italian food gives the impression that we are eating light and healthy.

Because it is a nice and quiet place to get together for Christmas dinner.

We choose W52.

We order many dishes, but only one is good.

IMG_8052White truffle risotto. Part of the Tantalizing White Truffles Set Dinner. Excellent.


All the others, ordinary, forgettable, boring, blah.
