A Meal to Remember at DoSi Caffé

I had the good fortune to visit DoSi Caffé on Bay Street the other night as a guest of some friends. I had never been before, and was pleasantly surprised to find the atmosphere as warm as the service which sometimes seems to be a rare commodity on Staten Island.

The warmth and attention that the DoSi staff showers on its guests shines through in Chef Warren Schierenbeck's food which everyone agree was excellent. My host had arranged for a couple of special plates, rather than ordering off the menu, but we had generous helpings of antipasti, pasta, steak and bronzino, all followed by dessert. Needless to say, I went home more than a little full.

One dish in particular was such a stand out that I pleaded with owners, JoAnn Libretti and Chef Schierenbeck, to part with it so that I could share it with you. You'll find the decadent recipe below but you should really go to DoSi to try it for yourself -- all you foodies can call it empirical research.

Cavatelli with lobster, corn and asparagus

1 lb Cavatelli
8 oz. Lobster meat
1 cup fresh corn kernels
1 cup asparagus spears
8 oz. Butter
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 oz. anisette

1. Cook pasta according to directions on package.
2. In separate pan warm all ingredients except for parsley in 1/2 cup of water
3. Add cooked pasta
4. Add parsley
5. Toss and cook over low flame for 2-minutes until sauce coats ingredients
6. Season with Salt and pepper
7. Serve Immediately

Enjoy! And remember when you visit to let them know the SIREN sent you!
