Best Fritters

Gaby & Mo's Risotto Fritters

Gaby & Mo's Blue Plate Specials are a tease. Each week they print a list of their scrumptious lunch specials, and we find ourselves torn: Should we wait until Thursday for the zesty Chicken Korma or go ahead and feast on today's Meatloaf & Garlic Mashed? Well, whenever the Risotto Fritters are on tap, our week's a cinch. We can't resist the call of the delicate mounds of risotto cooked to the perfect texture and consistency, gently dusted with a cornmeal concoction, and lightly pan-fried. Oh, and the glorious symphony for the taste buds does not end there. The fritters are draped in an impeccable, tangy marinara, covered with just enough mozzarella, and baked. Oh. My. God. Cap it off with whatever the bread of the day is, a salad spritzed with one of G&M's own amazing dressings, and a glass of red wine and you are on the Appian Way, my friend.
