Olive Oil and Vinegar

The Hill in St. Louis is a landmark in St. Louis history. The Hill is an Italian community. So Italian that they don't even put houses on the real estate market. They sell them by word of mouth. They also have more than 20 Italian restaurants. Of course Lauren and I frequent STL quite often and visit with Aunt Debbie. Those who know Aunt Debbie know her and Jeff love to run around the city and visit every single place in 24 hours. We love going to the hill and eating. Zia's the the place I love. The Chicken Spiedini Proscuitto is the best on the menu. White breast meat marinated, lightly dusted in breadcrumbs, basted in lemon butter and charbroiled. Topped with white wine, lemon butter sauce with proscuitto ham, slicedmushrooms and provel cheese. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it. You think that something like this would be expensive but its not, $12. So if you ever in the STL and want to eat Italian don't go to Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill, Go to the hill and try our favorite place to eat.
