Part IX: Culture and Quality > Columns from an Italian Restaurant

Chapter 56. Columns from an Italian Restaurant

The truth is, as I sipped and savored my way through one particularly unforgettable evening there, I realized there was nothing I could improve. No herb could be added, no pinch of salt left out. Not even a garnish could be moved a hair's breadth to improve the artistry of the presentation.
