Antoni's Italian Café creates its own version of the traditional veal scaloppine, grilling veal and topping it with artichoke hearts in a white wine, lemon and butter sauce. For EatLafayette, order one pasta dish and a small salad for $10; choose among pasta fresca with grilled chicken, bolognese pasta or four-cheese macaroni. Antoni's is located at 1118-A Coolidge Blvd. in the Oil Center and is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Every week day during EatLafayette, the popular initiative to get more diners into locally owned restaurants, The Independent will spotlight a Dish of the Day; on Wednesdays, our Dish of the Day also becomes the Dish of the Week and is published in the print edition. Because of the July 4 holiday, the paper and Dish of the Week publish Tuesday. The campaign runs June 18 to Aug. 15.
To be eligible for the Dish of the Day feature, digital images from participating EatLafayette restaurants or their patrons must be emailed to Katie Macdonald at firstname.lastname@example.org or Elizabeth Rose at email@example.com . (From time to time, The Independent will also photograph some of the dishes.) When emailing please include information like any special cooking techniques used, the name of the chef or cook who prepared the dish, and whether the dish is part of an EatLafayette special. To be eligible for the Dish of the Week competition going forward, cooks or chefs must also include the recipe and instructions on how to prepare the meal.
