Opinions on Biricchino and Salumeria Biellese

Considering a dinner reservation at Biricchino and take out from Salumeria Biellese for a lunch during a 3 day trip to NYC in December. Staying within a few blocks of each. Any/all suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Tom

  1. The only things I remember enjoying at Birichino was the stuff that came from Biellese, salumi and the grilled sausages. It has been a while since I was there maybe 4 or so years. It is kind of a dreary section of town, unless you need to remain close to where you are staying I think I'd venture out. There are plenty of suggestions for pasta, etc, on this board.

      No experience with Birrichino but I enjoy Biellese's italian combo just about once a week, even a small sandwich divided in half is a decent lunch portion. Good for a working lunch. If you want sit and enjoy, I'd say go to Co. pizza on 24th/9th or Txikito for tapas.

        Thanks so much. Staying at 28th St. & 6th Ave. I usually stay further up near 51st. St & 3rd Ave. Kinda' honed in on Biricchino due to locale. Really want a decent serving of pasta with a classic sauce. Also, their antipasto plate and their reputation for their supplier/parent company really caught my attention. Living in NC, we get over sauced and over cooked pasta. Any recommendations for a mom and pop classic "gravy" place would be welcome. Thanks, Tom
