Passerotto has been voted R.C. Best Restaurant for Year 19. Since I initially picked it, and Priest is busy at work, I am sending out the RSVP email. Unfortunately (fortunately?) it is super popular (Bib Gourmand, James Beard, etc). It might be difficult to get a table together for everyone that comes, but the sooner I know, the easier it will be to try to get us reservations. *Please be aware that there is a good chance we will be seated in small groups.

At this time I am guessing reservations will be around 6 to 7pm on March 8 (if not a lot of people come). We might be out of luck if a ton of people come, or again it might be small groups. Please RSVP by tomorrow at 9am (sorry for the short notice).

This is from the initial e-mail I sent about Passerotto:

Passerotto (Italian for “little sparrow”) is a neighborhood Korean restaurant from award-winning chef-owner Jennifer Kim. The food draws on Kim’s Korean heritage: paying homage to the traditional and, occasionally, not-quite-traditional dishes she grew up eating with her family, adding a few minor touches from the Midwest and Central Italy, a nod to the way coastal Italian food has impacted her life.
