I don't think I've ever been so excited to introduce a dish. We have been on a mission to bring an extraordinary pasta dish to Amy's On Franklin (Chef Jeremiah was ready to strangle me with all the unique requirements), but I think we both are in love with this dish, and can't wait to share it with you!
Amy's presents: THE VEZZOSO
In homage to my grandparents and great grandparents, Joe and Sarah Vezzoso, and John and Julia Vezzoso. I know how very proud they would be to see their granddaughter being a successful business owner, property owner on Franklin Street, my work on Franklin Street and in the greater community, and owning bars and restaurants. My great-grandfather owned a "soda pop bar" during prohibition in Minneapolis (ahem... soda pop bar, I'll let you do the figuring), spent time in California, until my grandfather moved to Evansville to work on the LST's in the shipyard, with his skillset in hanging iron. He met my grandmother, they built their construction business in Howell, then eventually moved to a property just doors down from me on Franklin Street. My grandmother loved Franklin Street, and I know how much joy it would have brought her to see all of this come to fruition.
Our family of immigrants, have lived to see their dreams realized in their children, grand children and great grandchildren.
The Vezzoso will be prepared table side, finished off in a wheel of Grana Padano, after being lovingly prepared with shrimp, house bacon, red pepper in a cream sauce in our scratch kitchen.
We hope you love the story, the dish, and the uniqueness of Amy's as we continue to grow the restaurant.
