I had time to wander a bit in the Grand Central Market, and decided to drop by the new place by Chef Bruce Kalman (Union in Pasadena) for a quick lunch.
Every dish tasted very good to excellent, with no misses. This is a very impressive feat, considering the limited kitchen space, and that everything is made pretty much fresh to order, and all done during a chaotic lunch rush.
Highlights included: Bucatini all’amatriciana, spelt cavatelli, and pork agnolotti (pork instead of duck today because they ran out of duck). All the pastas were super. I especially thought the cavatelli was perfect al dente - Couldn’t finish it fast enough…
