Well the date is almost upon jfood. His reservation at Babbo for the first time is 48 hours away.
Anything on the current menu that jfood just has to have?
cool. the pig's feet (don't laugh) are wonderful. the salumi is house cured. share them both. the pasta is very good. order and share two dishes or more. skip the secondo and make reservations again on the way out. maybe sit at the bar. the wine selection is outstanding. place yourself in the hands of your server. treat the place like a decent place to hang out rather than a destination. it works for me.
I really loved the Black Spaghetti with rock shrimp, spicy salami calabrese and green chiles. Be forewarned; it is quite spicy.

Pork chop is massive and unbelievably juicy and delicious.
Duck is amazing.
Great desserts- Almond Budino, Pistachio Semifreddo, Chocolate Hazelnut cake
The ribeye looked absolutely incredible from other tables. I regret not ordering that.
