Layers and Layers of Lasagna
Wednesdays are usually plain old Wednesdays.
If it weren’t for the Hungry Post’s weekly news we don’t know what would keep us going.
Besides that, Wednesdays are the weekend’s tease, you’re just half way through the week and feelings of fatigue and helplessness are overwhelming.
But there is one Wednesday of the month that we don’t mind at all. In fact we actually ADORE it! We’d even hug it if it were a person, teddy bear, or a St Bernard. The first Wednesday of the month is the only memorable Wednesday of the month, at least in Miami. This day is Lasagna Night in one of Coral Gables classic restaurants, Bugatti.
For more than 25 years, German-Estonian Klaus and Austrian Amy Frisch have been serving fine pasta and Italian creations without a stove, focusing on flavor and consistency.
Their semi-formal bistro is simple. Decoration is limited to a series of pear paintings hung on the walls, booths with marble tables, and tables topped with white linen cloths.
There isn’t much to it, which we find completely appropriate since the food here speaks for itself, nothing else is needed.
And the meat lasagna is definitely a testament to this. It’s all about how the meat and layers of pasta come together soaked in this perfectly constructed – no need for an introduction or explanation, irresistible Mornay sauce, worthy of finger licking and bread dipping.
Don’t miss out on the sweets, desserts are outrageously good, and we recommend you be greedy when it comes to the chocolate mousse. We must instantly devour it, mixing bittersweet and white chocolate with a cream sauce and a raspberry drizzle that will drive you insane.
Tip for the hungry: Make sure that you arrive at the same time as your party because they won’t seat you until everyone is there.
Other specials: Bugatti’s Pasta Specials start on Thursdays and usually run
until the following Wednesday.
Generally they serve a Noodle Special and a Filled Pasta Special. The lunch prices for these specials include a choice of House or Caesar salad or the selection of one of our three soups (get the Vichyssoise for a great rendition of the chilled potato and leek soup).
