Second Day in Florence (Wednesday, June 9, 2010)

On our second day in Florence we visited the wonderful Mercato Centrale. It's full of little stalls selling veggies, fruits, meats, cheeses, etc. 

dried mushrooms


We picked up the ingredients so that we could have spaghetti alla carbonara for lunch.

Tomatoes with lunch

We had one of the bottles of wine we purchased the day before at La Buca del Vino. It was great!

For dinner we went to a little trattoria around the corner. 

We started with chicken liver crostini

We shared a pasta (perhaps alla bolognese?)

Janet ordered chicken hoping it would be a good as the one I got in Munich (it wasn't)

I had some roast beef

The dinner was certainly solidly acceptable, but not amazing. As we left the restaurant at the end of dinner we realized that we had been segregated into a back room for Americans... The front room was all Italians.
