Gluten-Free Carbonara with Arugula

I had real carbonara for the first time about four years ago.  And once was enough to know that I should have been eating and making it years ago.  But it seemed too delicate and complicated to make at home. I was wrong.

J brought home Capello's gluten-free, grain-free pasta from Savvi, our corner market.  It's made with almond flour, eggs, tapioca flour, xanthan gum, salt.  You boil it for 45 seconds.  45 SECONDS!  This might be the fastest dinner I've ever made without leftovers.  Cook it.  You'll see.

Summer Dinner at The Luminary

Renovated warehouse + Brasserie = The Luminary.  It's so pretty inside.  A mix of white and black textiles with gold accents.  There's a drink bar, a raw bar, and leather booths and surrounding cafe tables for dining.  I could live in there.

We started dinner with cocktails.  I had the Secret Girlfriend, made with tequila and chartreuse and J had I Feel Pretty, a mix of gin, absinthe and more.
