Looking for Houndworthy gnocchi in the City

Andrew Nov 15, 2001 07:43 PM

So my latest thing has been making my own gnocchi from scratch...a process far more gordian than I anticipated. Seems like one of those things that requires a great deal of practice and/or an Italian grandparent.

I'd love to sample some gnocchi in San Francisco that the learned and discerning hounds have found superlative...to see what I'm really shooting for, you know?

    Zuni usually has a delicious ricotta gnocchi on their menu. Very tender and slathered in butter. I think that technically their version should be call ravioli gnudi.

    In my own gnocchi-making endeavors I have found that baking the potatoes, rather than boiling gets me better results.

      I like the simple gnocci with gorgonzola sauce at Mangia Tutti, on Clay just above Montgomery in the financial district.

        Da Flora's sweet potato gnocchi - no question about it!
