Make Soleto’s Polenta Croquettes at Home
If you read the BGG Weekender, you probably noticed our mention of downtown newbie restaurant Soleto yesterday. What we didn't allude to, however, was their freaking make-us-cry-while-stuck-at-work happy hour, which starts at 3 p.m. and runs until 7 p.m. Crispy Polenta Croquettes and White Peach Sangria? Yes, please!
And since we know that some of you work for people who don't understand the meaning of life (which is to drink a lot, and as early as possible, obviously), we've managed to procure the recipe for Crispy Polenta Croquettes from Soleto's chef so that you can go home later tonight and try to pretend that your life is good. Happy Happy Hour!
