fiori di zucca - squash blossoms, fior di latte, green garlic
I predict this will be their most popular dish, almost every table ordered this. The squash blossoms were perfectly cooked and had a super light, delicate and greaseless batter, reminded me of the stuffed squash blossoms I had in italy and tempura from japan. Delicious.
spaghetti, bottarga di muggine, xvo, peperoncino
The bottarga really shined, briny and a little bitter. Pasta was perfectly al dente as expected. Pretty good.
tonnarelli cacio e pepe
Text book. Solid.
orecchiette, sausage sugo, rapini, peperoncino, pecorino
My favorite of the night, the rapini really balanced everything out.
Overall, everything was really good and surprisingly reasonably priced with generous portions. Not like that republique bullshit. I hope they do some more meat and seafood pastas and don't pull a cassia and start raising prices. Service was really professional. Bill included a 20% "service charge" with a line for "additional gratuity".
