La Focacceria, aka Vinnie's, closed nearly five years ago. Today, while doing a little post-holiday cleaning, I found this menu under my desk. There was always a bunch of menus on the counter at Vinnie's, although I never saw anyone consult one. The specials were written on erasable wall boards, and the spellings were eccentric in the extreme. I usually ordered the sfinciune, a cheeseless onion-and-anchovy Sicilian pizza, that appeared neither on the menu nor on the wall; nor did the cheesy, meaty rice balls. Both appeared randomly from the kitchen and were deposited on the counter, near where spleen was frying for the vesteddi.
