In from the coldOn one of the iciest, nastiest nights of the year ( year that was only 5 days old, granted) we braved the elements and a snowbank defying all but the most intrepid. Then a metal staircase up to Runner & Stone. We knew what waited within: homemade pasta, fresh produce and that warm, yeasty smell that made up temporarily forget the cold.

|Squid ink bucatini special|
We resisted the crostini with ricotta and truffle honey - more bread? - but not the spicy hummus with grilled pita. And fried Brussels sprouts, so we could have some veggies with our perfect martinis. Runner & Stone uses local spirits like Dorothy Parker, a gin made in Greenhook.

Pasta festThe ricotta ravioli sat on a bed of tomato jam, with a drizzle of bright green basil oil. The red, white and green evoked Italy and the pastas we enjoyed last year.
I had a special, squid ink bucatini with chunks of lobster. It was rich, but not overwhelmingly so.
Fish of the dayMy husband had the hake, served with cannellini beans, spinach, olive romesco and radish.
In case you were wondering...
The name, Runner & Stone is from a mill. The runner and the stone are used to grind grain.
