Tuesday’s Panini of the Day:” Crusty Italian bread, fresh mozzeralla, provalone, capricollo, honey ham, tomatoes, red peppers and onions. I’ve been meaning to hit La Prima for awhile now, (they feature a panini every tuesday) and the stars finally aligned today: I remembered, I called, the girl on the phone rattled off a list of tasty somethings, and 15 minutes later, the deal was done. The intrigue began when I opened the bag: oblong sandwiches? Wrappings? Rogue basil leaf? A panini with no stripes? Nevertheless, I think Prima got this one right. You’re probably thinking, “But that’s so not a grilled cheese.” You’re probably right, it’s probably isn’t. Frankly, I had my heart set on blogging today, so we’re just going to pretend it was. In a word, zesty. The capricollo was spicy, bread was almost pretzel-like, and the cheese was ample. I could have done without the tomatoes, (only because I didn’t know they were going to be in there) but overall, the whole thing was a pleasant surprise.   I’m going to call this one an 8, and will be back for more. 8/10. ($7.89)
