Remember when metropolitan neighborhoods were more authentic and distinguished in presence? Businesses exhibited notable character, and homes were defined by their cultural denizens, ultimately presenting a quaint blend of commercial and residential? One knew the local shopkeeper, be it butcher, baker, or bartender. The corner store was the place to buy essentials; the owner knew your name and disclosed neighborhood gossip to any receptive ear. Gone are some of these characteristic environs, but, alas, I have found a corner restaurant that offers a charming, cozy setting and delightful cuisine. Frascati's CalItalian fare presents itself with such conviviality and panache that I would venture there just for its distinct personality.
