Deviled Eggs @ Mondo
When Susan Spicer opened her new Mondo, she said it would be a neighborhood cafe. She didn’t say she’d serve the same food as in every other neighborhood cafe. Which brings us to the appetizer of three halves of deviled eggs. Why three? Two isn’t enough, four is too much. The mixture of egg yolk and seasonings in the middle is sharp and good, and the remoulade-like aioli completes a pleasantly different meal beginner. Great with a cocktail. (Specifically, a Rob Roy.)
