      Wholeheartedly second the recommendation for Grotto. Union also has a delicious appetizer of duck confit and gnocchi that is back on the menu now that the cold weather is here.

        I'll jump on the Grotto bandwagon here,,,short rib gnocchi, yum and I also had a very respectable gnocchi at Pigalle.

          I just had the gnocchi at Union last night...they offer it as an app or an entree, and I had the entree...ended up taking half of it home, and it was fantastic! Lovely light gnocchi, duck confit, orange, grilled radicchio, and rosemary....very rich and delicious...I highly recommend it!

      2. I had a great crab gnocchi appetizer at Rendezvous last week. Quite a light dish, with juicy corn and little tomatoes and succulent lumps of crab meat. I could have eaten a whole bowl of it.

        1. Yum... I had the gnocchi appitizer at Chiara in Westwood last night and it was very good. It was simple, with wild mushrooms, and very satisfying.

          1. No 9 Park and the Butcher shop I second... At No 9 it is served with foie Gras...Mmmmm
