In a few words, FUMO is like an arpeggio chord of authentic Italian cuisine in Hamilton Heights. FUMO restaurant is located at 1600 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10031/Corner of 139th Street.
On Sunday, June 12th, my friend Kelli treated her sister Kimberly and me to dinner at FUMO restaurant. Earlier, they had taken a Samba class at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. I had a splendid day in the Sheep Meadow in Central Park. As we settled at our table, we ordered our wines: Sauvignon Blanc, Tohu, 2014 New Zealand; and Cabernet, Carnivor, 2013 California.
Kelli ordered Margherita Pizza (fresh mozzarella, basil, tomato, EVOO); Kim, the FUMO Burger (lettuce, tomato, bacon, cheddar, chipotle mayo, truffle fries), and I ordered Meatballs (pomodoro, grilled garlic bread, and basil).
We have been friends for over a decade, and we had a joyful time at the homey and scrumptious restaurant. It was such a gorgeous day and the evening reminded me of why I love living in New York City.
Happy Father’s Day.
