Old Vine Café's Caprese of Mozarella Buratta
In case you didn't know, Buratta is a mixture of buffalo mozzarella and cream that tastes like butter. At Old Vine Café, the buratta is mixed with arugula that's been flash-fried in citrus-infused olive oil and served with grape tomatoes. At $14 per plate, it's not cheap—it even ties for the most expensive item on the menu—but its a rare treat, fills the belly and goes down great with a glass of sauvignon blanc.
