Our First Arrival

Nancy is here! Our first arrival is somewhere near the train station. We head off to the train, which is not far from the consulate. Unfortunately it has started raining. And seriously, we're not firing on all cylinders still. But finally, after circling for a few more minutes, we spot Nancy at a street vendor buying an umbrella.

Hugs, kisses and all that good stuff. But first things first, we need some lunch! And Nancy needs a glass of wine. Luckily, Nancy is a pro at clipping articles with interesting sounding recipes and restaurants. We scan the clipping on restaurants in Florence she has from Food & Wine and settle on what seems to be the perfect match, Trattoria Coco Lezzone. The description reads

"Just off Via Tornabuoni, one of Florence's fanciest shopping streets, this hole-in-the-wall local favorite is famous for its eccentric chef (his typewritten rules are: no coffee, no credit cards and no steak that isn't blood-rare). But there are few better versions of classics such as osso buco alla fiorentina.
