A Short North Saturday – Rigsby’s Kitchen

Rigsby’s Cuisine Volatile
698 North High Street
Greek Meat Balls with Tzadziki
Fried Picholine Olives
Arancine with Prosciutto and Mozzarella
Prosciutto di Parma with Fig Jam and Fett’unta
Smoked Salmon Crostini with Horseradish-Chive Cream
Spicy Shrimp Bruschetta with Garlic and Raddichio
Steamed Mussels with Spicy Garlic Tomato Broth
Pizza Quattro Formaggi with White Truffle Oil
The twelve items on the menu add up to just over $100. Seems possible for two motivated people with a bottle of wine.
An asian mother and daughter duo come in at least once per month to share this menu with two ceasar salads at the same corner table by the window – what a great idea! I have not attempted this yet – but throw in two glasses of wine and this experience sounds like a perfect afternoon to me.
My favorite on the menu is the Steamed Mussels in Spicy Garlic Tomato Broth for $11. The friendly servers know the menu and have the expertise to help you scale down your choices if you can not decide what you want to order.
