Soup at Napoli

soup at napoli

Susan and I were evicted from the house tonight so Nat could treat Brandon to a special V-Day dinner. But the real transgression of the evening was my failure to collect sufficient info on where we wound up. Excuse: Napoli is brand new, recently built as one of the new places they’ve been putting up along the inside access road of the Beltway just south of Fairmont.

This is a delicious soup with a tomato basil base, filled with sausage, tomatoes, onions, and some veggies. I passed on the cheese stick appetizers, shared by Susan with Kelly, who joined us there. I then had the small portion of shrimp fettucini alfredo. Which is what guarantees that I will correct any information deficiencies in this post: their alfredo sauce could easily become one of my favorites anywhere.

We’d taken a bit of a risk trying this new place out on V-Day without a reservation, but Napoli has a very delightful upstairs room for those waiting for a table, where Susan and I shared a carafe of white zin while realizing neither of us remembers how to play at dominoes.
