Last Night at the Beppo

17 Aug 2014 /

The Buca di Beppo restaurant in Irvine is closing tomorrow. We stopped in this evening for a final meal. It was a sad occasion. Buca has been one of our culinary mainstays for over a decade. Here we are laughing to keep from crying:

Last night at the Beppo

We had antipasto salad and baked ziti, a very close call over the spicy chicken rigatoni.


We Had Linguini for Dinner Tonight!

Leftovers from a catered lunch meeting found their way into the break room refrigerator.

“That says ‘Pesto Penne,'” she says.

“Close enough!”
