Last night I had dinner with my wonderful friend, Minu, a fantastic guide in Venice, and her friend, Sandra, an architect with a successful business in Germany. The weird part is that this is the second time I have been taken to the same restaurant by completely different people! It’s called Aciugheta, which means tiny anchovy. I will go back if I have a chance — everything they say about Italian food is true.
Mini-exercise: I have one friend who no matter whether or not I offer to buy him a good dinner, he always prefers to eat in coffee shops, and always eats the same thing; grilled cheese and a vanilla milkshake. Would your main character eat in a fancy restaurant? If so, what would they eat and why? If not, where would they eat and what would they order?
