At a recent meal, the tartinette pomodorini / small toasts with stracchino and cherry tomato included the pleasant surprise ingredients (not disclosed on the menu) of sundried tomatoes and capers, mixed in with sweet, roasted cherry tomatoes. The soft, oozy stracchino elevated the simple appetizer into surprisingly luscious and decadent. There was an excessive amount of olive oil drizzled over top, but if you tilted the toasts to let some of the excess effluvia run off, the tartinettes were a delight. I enjoyed the textural study of sundried tomatoes and roasted tomatoes, side by side.
