The honey pannacotta with raspberries was the perfect combination of sweet and tart.

Have you ever used that fancy little spoon they give you at fine dining establishments to clean your plate because the food was so good that you didn’t want to miss a morsel? At Veritas in midtown Manhattan, I unabashedly used mine to scrape away during every course. To my credit, I didn’t actually lick my plate, but I came close. From the exquisite lamb to the complex wine, our meal was fantastic. My one regret is that I was too full at the end of it to order seconds! Words often fail me in this podcast, and I’m strikingly inarticulate, but that’s because I can’t say enough good things about Veritas.
