Takeout From Facci - Available Now (Sort Of)
As Nora Ephron so sagely noted, the Godfather is the sum of all wisdom. The Godfather is the answer to any question. At least for many boys.
Facci Ristorante famously hasn't offered takeout. They'll oblige once their current expansion is done. But Mrs. HowChow got takeout from Facci last month by confiding to our waiter that she was too stuffed to eat dessert at the table, but would love a cannoli to take home.
Facci makes the cream in house, and they're absolutely delicious -- although they're being caught by Facci's expanding dessert menu that included a real success of lemon gelato wrapped around a limoncello cream.
We had a delicious dinner at Facci with family. The waiter discretely delivered Mrs. HowChow's package, and she ordered us out the door and towards the fork that she knew she would find in our kitchen.
"Leave the gun," she said. "Take the cannoli."
