We ate; Speedino al Romano, Polpette (Meatballs), Spaghetti Carbonara, Escarole, Melanzane al Parmigiano (Eggplant), Veal Bismark (al Holstein), Rigatoni con Ragu, Cheesecake and TiraMi Su.
 
Oh buddy Jimmy took care of us and we had the most marvelous time.
 
 
 
 
Veal Bismark
 
aka Veal al Holstein
 
 
My old buddy, Chef Rene who I’ve known for almost 40 years made us Veal Bismark, which has not been on the menu for years, but he made it especially for our group. Everyone loved it. No one other then myself had ever eaten it before, and the wonderful flavors of the breaded fried veal cutlet, topped with a fried egg, and Anchovy Caper Sauce was amazing.
Veal a la Holstein was invented in the late 19th Century by the chef at the Berlin restaurant Borschardt, to please the palate of one Count Friedrich von Holstein. At John’s and at some other restaurants the dish is called Veal Bismark.
