What should I have on Angeli's last night?
I managed to get a reservation for tomorrow night, the last night Angeli will be open - made it a couple of weeks ago, and all I could get is 5:30, but at least I'll be there on the last night! My first time at Angeli was the first week it was open.
So I'm agonizing over what to eat. I was there last week also, and had the Ligurian fish soup, which is what I usually get. What are your chow-ish recommendations, what are the very best dishes?
Early is good! The kitchen is less hurried and things tend to back up around 6:30pm in my experience these past weeks with take out orders and such...
On our recent visits, we stuck with the classics. Gnocchi, Vegetables (the Brocolli is better than the potatoes) and Pizza Special (Great sausage!). The Chicken coming out also out looked outstanding!
We are doing takeout for our final Angeli meal:
white bean soup, pizza bread
caesar salad and forte salad
sausage & onion pizza and margarita pizza.
The guys are bringing it all home right now. What a treat! I hope her next endeavor won't be too far away. Wish her well and huge thank you to Evan Kleiman and her staff. We have been fans from the start.
Beet Gnochhi! or whatever gnocchi they have tommorrow night. Also, ask for some extra bread to go and freeze it for another time. I love the veggie pizza too. The first thing i ever ate there was the ravioli and i kept getting that until i discovered the gnocchi. so i'd switch off with gnocchi and veggie pizza and sad to say i never really experienced much else on the menu. i got the seafood linguine once and i don't remember loving it, but that was many years ago.
Don't forget patience, though probably less of it is needed at 5:30pm.
I never "got" their gnocchi, nor their pizzas, but the potato croquettes and the desserts remain absolute killer.
Had lunch there today - primarily because your post made me remember! So thanks! They don't have any seafood left, but I tasted my friend's lasagna bolognese and it was divine. Better than the pasta bolognese I had. We also had the chocolate bread pudding, which was amazing. But the best part was the bread - better than I've ever had before. If someone could score the recipe, that would be amazing!!!
