I am trying to remember this restaurant I went to once in soho- i think it was either on or near spring and thomson. It was in the middle of the block and had a lovely outdoor garden. there is/ or at least used to be a pasta on the menu and either it was in some sort of sauce that had cocoa or maybe the pasta itself contained cocoa
does anyone know what this place is?

      It might have been Fiamma, which closed early this year. Upscale Italian. They at one point served a chocolate pasta with wild boar ragu.

      It was on Spring St. between Sullivan and 6th Ave.

        Barolo? The garden side is on Thompson.

          This is probably the one OP was thinking of. Barolo has a wonderful outdoor garden and I think they've offered chocolate pasta from time to time as well.

          Is it a little place called Country Cafe?
