Mystery restaurant....does this place exist?
My friend told me about an incredibly good restaurant that she went to this past weekend.
She said it was near 10th avenue and 13th street and it was called, "Va Bella."
I cannot find anything with that name. (I also tried "La Bella.")
Does anyone know which one I mean?
Thanks in advance.
Valbella. I've never heard of the place; I found it with google maps. Menupages reveals that it's hilariously overpriced (cheapest pasta is $28), and its own website calls it "the trendiest restaurant in the meatpacking district." So I definitely won't be racing over there, but do report back if you go.
I've eaten at the one in Greenwich. Terrible. If you played up every cliche of what an "upscale Italian" should be, and threw in a couple of Italian-american stereotypes, you'd be creating the archetype for Valbella.

I've never been, but I know of it cos Regis Philbin and his producer love ValBella and rave about it all the time on air.
