Allright I looked through the board, and I did not see any specifics nor pics discussing what to get at Osteria Mozza. Most of the information came during the opening, and I want to know who has been there recently. If so, recommendations?
burrata w/ bacon
burricotti w/ braised artichokes
orecchiette w/ swiss chard & sausage
gnocchi w/ wild boar ragu
The guinea fowl is my favorite. It's essentially an update on a chicken-liver crostini, with a braised bird dallopped on top. A great dish.
Nancy Bar, if you have the option. It's fun to feel like you're in the middle of the action.
I also have to say the grilled octopus and the ricotta and egg ravioli. I thought the olive oil/rosemary play on dessert was interesting too.
Also have to chime in on the grilled octopus. My other favorite is the tripe. I enjoyed the oxtail tagliatelle but found the monkfish fra diavolo not particularly memorable.
I was there early last Saturday, and would note that even through only a fraction of the tables were occupied before 7:30, the Mozzarella Bar was nearly full the entire time.
