Anyone know of a Ligurian in the area? manhattan is fine too. I have someone who wants to do an event there to show off the food of her homeland. Got anything??

Not to rain on anyone's parade overlooking the Gulf of Tigullio and what not, but I just scanned Nizza's menu. I'm not exactly an out and out expert, but I've spent about a year in a half total in Liguria if you add up all my visits and that menu is very hard pressed to be passed off as Ligurian beyond a couple of pasta dishes and a couple of appetizers.
Eh, at least they do pizza with pesto.
I Tre Merli isn't perfect, but it seems to have a lot more authentic Ligurian dishes across the whole menu.
