"Oak+Violet in Menlo Park just debuted a new Sicilian menu by new Bay Area chef Simona Oliveri. Her dishes are exciting and spirit-lifting. The menu includes sardine meatballs, fried squash blossoms, linguine with almond pesto and citrus crumbs, tomato soup, roast chicken (they split it for us) and lemon Sambuca sorbet."
