On Friday night we went to SAID dal 1923, Vincenzo's favorite restaurant in the Roman neighborhood of San Lorenzo, to celebrate his birthday. SAID is an old chocolate factory (still manufacturing delicious chocolate) that has broadened its offering to include a wonderful restuarant with chocolate delights.This is the chocolate desert bar where the chocolatiere (or chocolatista) prepared a fantasia for us with assorted cakes drizzled in milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. Everything was garnished with chocolate-dipped fruit and the plate included a ramekin of chocolate sauce with whole basil leaves. DELICIOUS!
