kinds of biscotti and an array of Italian pastries line the shelves
at Cosi Duci, an Italian bakery that draws recipes from Sicily. The appeal here isn't just the pastries, though. It's the three-course
weekday lunch, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays for $10.
Take what you're served, since there's no
menu, though it's bound to be delicious. Among the day's items you
might find something akin to today's lunch: lentil soup, penne with
asparagus and zucchini, followed by chicken Cacciatore with homemade focaccia
Giovanna Fausto opened the shop in 2007 in response to her son learning
he has multiple sclerosis. She decided to help the way she knew how: by
cooking for a
cure. A portion of all proceeds go toward the MS Society.
For those with a sweet tooth who are gluten-free, take note: Fausto
offers a line of Italian baked goods just for you.
