Says King…”And the best meal of a vacation that took us to Trieste, Vienna, New York, Chicago and Minneapolis came in … Montclair, N.J. I’ve blown smoke at Osteria Giotto on Midland Avenue in Montclair a few times, like the time I took Brandon Jacobs of the Giants there two nights before the Giants and Pack played in the NFC Championship Game — and Jacobs loved the lasagna so much he had to get two pieces to go for a late-night snack. It was great to see old friends and to have my annual piece of said lasagna (it’s perfect — not overwhelmingly heavy, but with some different spices, like nutmeg) and the mista salad.”
You won’t find the lasagna ($19.50) on the dinner menu, but it’s always a featured special. Here’s what made King and Jacobs swoon — nine layers of homemade pasta, along with Bolognese and Bechamel sauces, and Parmesan cheese.
