what are your favorite dishes at nyc restaurant's?
i was just curious what everyone's favorite dishes (not meals) were at nyc's restaurant's? i'll start it off...
i love the gnoccheti with wild boar ragu at assenzio on 4th b/t a&b. it may be one of my most favorite dishes in manhattan. the gnocceti is perfectly cooked and the ragu has a great earthy flavor with carrots and potatoes.
i also love one of the dessert's at suba: they are little sugared donuts with warm milk chocolate in the middle. i don't remember the name, but wow are the incredible!
