If you haven't tried Spoons (24 E. Cross St) for dinner yet, now is a good time to check it out. In November, Spoons is serving “Sunday Gravy” from 4 to 7 pm. Co-owner Deb Cogan explains, “It is an Italian family-style meal that is usually served on Sunday afternoons or evenings when the whole family would get together.”
The gravy (sauce or ragu) is not your typical spaghetti sauce. It is cooked for over four hours and then enriched with a variety of cooked meats: links of Italian sausage, meatballs, and baby back ribs. Spoons' Sunday Gravy includes antipasto salad, pasta plus meat, and dessert. Price is $19 for adults and $5 for kids under the age of 12. Italian wines are also available. “Sunday evenings will be for gravy only, so no other food items will be available,” explained Deb.
Be sure to check out the regular dinner options on other nights. You will be glad you did!
