Pasquale II revitalizing just in time for spring S
BY JANANNE ABEL
pring has finally sprung with its daffodils, tulips, flowering trees and warmer temperatures. It’s a wonderful time of year for restaurants like Pasquale II at 2 Putnam Ave. which is set in a garden with flowering trees overhanging the red brick patio and flower beds as well as potted plants encircling it. Located near the Greenwich border across from Carvel, it’s one of the nicer places in town to dine outside.
Spring couldn’t have come soon enough for owner Frank Di Rende, who said he’s got Communion parties booked for the next few weeks followed by Mother’s Day. There was both a Communion party and a baby shower taking place at Pasquale II Ristorante the Sunday I snapped my photos. “It’s a good time of year,” Di Rende admitted, “but it can’t really make up for the last four months.” After almost 17 years, Pasquale has built up a reputation for consistency in its fine Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. “We try to provide consistent food and quality,” Di Rende said. The restaurant still has many regular customers, but instead of coming in a couple times a week, they come in once or twice a month, he said. He remains excited about the restaurant business, “but it’s tough,” he conceded, “especially with
the economy the way it is. It’s a struggle to make ends meet.” In addition, there’s plenty of competition just in Port Chester and Rye Brook. Di Rende, 46, married with three young children and living in East Fishkill, said he realizes “you’ve got to do different angles and bring in different items to keep the customers interested.” In an effort to “keep up with the times and change things around a little bit,” he’s added $10.95 personal pizzas (margherita, cheese, crumbled sausage and crumbled sausage with long hot peppers) and Panini (i.e. Caprese with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers and basil pesto sauce; Calabrese with hot soppressata, fresh mozzarella, roasted peppers, hot cherry peppers and sundried tomatoes; grilled chicken with lemon tarragon mayo; steak with sautéed mushrooms and onions; grilled

Pasquale II revitalizing just in time for spring
Continued from page 6 and din but not roar of customers from young adults to senior citizens. Except for having to ask for parmesan cheese for the gnocchi, service by the staff working together was excellent, even on a busy night.
Pasquale II, which seats 130, has two dining rooms, one to your right and one to your left off the entryway. Both are decorated with mirrors to make them seem even larger than they are. First a wooden bench and tapestry followed by an oak divider set with plants and bottles of olive oil and a worn rustic tile floor greet you upon entering Pasquale. Straight ahead a small bar seating six at tall chairs is surrounded by rich wood cabinetry filled with liquor bottles. A matching rack displays an extensive selection of wines. You enter the sunnier dining room with lots of large windows to your right through an open archway. Gold and pale green valances with tassels match the curtains that are usually tied back at the entranceway but can be closed for private parties. This room can accommodate parties of up to 60 people. The wide windows throughout the restaurant are hung with these subtly colored valances with tassels and fancy gold
Pasquale Osso, the person for whom Pasquale II was named and Di Rende’s cousin, was originally his partner and head chef. He left the business around 2000 to start a new venture in Maryland and then died in a freak accident a few years later. When he became the sole owner, Di Rende decided not to change the name of the restaurant. Di Rende and Osso, who both came from the town of San Lucido in southern Italy, had worked together at Dominick’s on Arthur Avenue when Osso asked Di Rende about going partners with him in this new restaurant. They had a few friends and customers from Port Chester who recommended this location to them. “We came to see it, liked it and went

We chose a bottle of one of the featured wines of the month—Guenoc 2000 Victorian Claret from California ($35) to pair with our meal. Claret is the English term for wines from the Bordeaux region with cherry, raspberry and chocolate aromas. Somewhat sweet, smooth and light, this wine blended perfectly with a pasta as well as a fish dish.

Give the gift of green for Mother’s Day Mom may appreciate chocolate or flowers. But for children who want to offer her something a little more special—especially for their eco-conscious moms—there are a number of different gift options to make Mom’s big day as ecofriendly as it is enjoyable. An eco-friendly gift for Mom is a gift that keeps on giving. When you jot down your gift list, think about adding the following “green” ones: • Make a basket of gardening gear. Garden plants and supplies are perhaps the greenest gifts to give Mom. Plants are so plentiful and varied that there are bound to be ideal flowers or greenery for every mother’s tastes. Compile different gardening essentials, such as seeds or seedlings, organic soil mix, mulch, all-natural compost, and a few different planting containers. You can also include gardening gloves and ergonomic tools made of recycled materials. Finish the gift with the inclusion of a book that describes different garden designs and gives tips for beginners. • Dine at a local restaurant. Many families take Mom out for a meal on her special day. To make the experience eco-friendly, select among restaurants that are close to home. Explore the possibilities of restaurants that may serve foods made with local, organic ingredients. If you cannot find such a restaurant, do not worry, just
choose a local establishment to conserve fuel. • Pay for a car tune-up. Improving the gas mileage on Mom’s car is one gift that can be environmentally friendly. According to the United States Department of Energy, keeping a car in shape can help save money and improve fuel economy. Fixing a serious maintenance problem, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, can improve Mom’s gas mileage by as much as 40 percent. Also, be sure her car tires are properly inflated. She can be losing gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in all four tires. Getting an oil change with the recommended grade of motor oil is another gas mileage improvement measure. • Purchase eco-friendly kitchen items. It may be a major faux pas to give Mom an appliance or a new
vacuum for Mother’s Day. However, if your mother is an avid cook or baker, she may appreciate some new mixing bowls or utensils made from recycled materials. If Mom is the consummate entertainer, get her new glass tumblers and sipping straws made from recycled glass. They are perfect for serving cocktails and outdoor entertaining. • Pamper mom with organic products. What mom doesn’t enjoy a little pampering from time to time? You can treat your mother to a spa experience at home by assembling a basket full of organic shampoo, conditioner, massage oils, bath salts, and any other organic spa items you can find. • Select organic fruits and flowers. Companies like www. organicbouquet.com can assemble a bouquet made from responsibly grown flowers or even a wreath for a wall or door. They also have food gifts, from organic fruits to nuts. • Spend the day outdoors. Most moms cherish any gift from their children, whether lavish or simple. A nice, eco-friendly gift is to spend time together. Research local parks or hiking trails and plan a day where you both commune with nature. Or even head to the seaside for a relaxing day. Explore the landscape and be on the lookout for birds and washed up treasure from the sea. Plan to finish the day with a homemade picnic lunch.
Mother’s Day is celebrated on various days in countries around the world. Many countries celebrate Mother’s Day in March, April or May. Though the Mother’s Day people know today dates back a little more than a century, historians note that ancient Romans kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of the Gods. One of the traditions associated with Mother’s Day is to give Mom a gift. Some people only give their own mothers and wives gifts, while others extend their generosity to sisters with children, mothers-in-law and even grandmothers. Chances are, over the years Mom’s gifts have run the gamut, from a homemade treasure kids made in elementary school to jewelry from hubby to breakfast in bed. For those who want to add a literary tilt to their Mother’s Day gift this year, consider including any of the following motherly quotes when preparing a gift Mom won’t soon forget. • “Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.” Lin Yutang, Chinese writer • “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” - Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States • “Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; a mother’s secret hope outlives them all.” - Oliver Wendell Holmes, American author • “A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.” - Irish proverb • “All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.” - Oscar Wilde, Irish poet • “If I was damned of body and soul, I know whose prayers would make me whole, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine.” - Rudyard Kipling in his poem “Mother O’ Mine” • “The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” - Honore de Balzac, French playwright • “The future destiny of a child is always the work of the mother.” - Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France • “The God to whom little boys say their prayers has a face very like their mothers’.” - James Matthew Barrie, Scottish author
Motherhood can be a selfless gesture Becoming a mother is one of the most selfless and loving gestures a woman can make. In the course of bringing new life into the world, a woman experiences a host of physical and emotional changes, some of which may be long-lasting and undesired. The body undergoes many transformations while pregnant. Women must sacrifice some control over their bodies throughout a pregnancy, a sacrifice most are not accustomed to. A number of things take place that may surprise the average woman. Here’s a look at some of them: • Mood swings: Pregnancy brings with it great hormonal changes as the body manufactures the chemical messengers necessary to transform an egg into a full-formed human being. It is common to experience mood swings as a result of these fluctuating hormones. One moment a woman may want to cry while the next she is overjoyed. Mood swings are often the butt of jokes regarding pregnant women. • Change in bra size: In addition to swelling breasts, thanks to progesterone and estrogen levels, a pregnant woman’s rib cage can actually expand. That’s because the lungs need to take in more oxygen to accommodate both Mom and baby. As a result, it may be necessary to be resized for a bra several times. • Hair changes: Women may find hair grows faster during pregnancy. This can once again be attributed to hormones in addition to the prenatal vitamins most women are urged to take. Also, hair may grow in unwanted places, like breasts and the belly. • Skin discoloration: Hormones may cause the skin to produce more pigment, and not necessarily in even tones. Women
may experience the “mask of pregnancy,” which is uneven pigmentation on the face. Other areas of the body can become blotchy or darker. On the bright side, pregnancy is known to stimulate extra blood flow, which can produce the side effect of rosier skin and the “pregnancy glow.” • Widening hips: A woman’s hips will widen to accommodate the baby during delivery. This is called pelvic separation. In addition, the joints and ligaments may loosen and the back might be more susceptible to injury. So women should use caution when lifting. Also, while the looser ligaments and widened hips may firm up and return to their original position over time, some women find their pelvis may never return to its exact pre-pregnancy shape. That could mean accepting a permanent new pant size. • Larger feet: Swelling and fluid collection often cause the feet to become larger. This may remedy itself postpartum. Some women simply find their feet are larger for the duration. • Hair loss: After giving birth, a woman’s hair actually may fall out or change in texture. It’s not uncommon for wavy hair to turn straight. • Incontinence: While a new mom is changing her baby’s diaper, she may need to wear one of her own. That’s because pressure and strain to the pelvic area can compromise the pelvic floor muscles that staunch and start the flow of urine. This may improve over time, or Kegel exercises can be done to strengthen the area again. While there are many uncomfortable and undesirable physical and emotional changes that take place upon becoming a mother, the ultimate reward is a beautiful child who will soon adore his or her Mommy.
