Carbonara downtown?

Hi all,

Grub Street's feature on traditional carbonara preparations has given me a serious craving. Any places downtown (preferably central or east village or LES) that serve a great one? I get it at Otto all of the time and love it but I go there a lot and am looking for something different - ideally at Otto's price point or below. I've done a search and seen some recommendations for the carbonara at Crispo. Is that the way to go or would you suggest anything else?

  1. the one at enoteca barbone is pretty great.

          Definitely Crispo and their other food is great too. I love their prosciutto.

        2. Prune has a great one. Brunch menu only.
