There are times when a night of celebrating gets away from you, and what you thought might be a casual dinner snowballs into your friends planning an all-night dance-off at the Dolphin Tavern. It’s a good thing you already made reservations at Ristorante Pesto, because you’re going to need to put something substantial in your stomach beforehand. The eggplant rollatini and seafood pasta should both be on your table, along with as many bottles of wine as your group feels the need to bring.
