I was so excited that my favorite “pasta” restaurant has come out with a summer menu that I had to share the email. Check out below courtesy of Porsena.

Seared skate wing, Umbrian lentils & heirloom broccoli raab  

Chef Sara Jenkins has crafted a summer menu at Porsena: appetizers of a tomato & cucumber salad, a brandied chicken pâté, and salt cod cakes!
