I have been racking my brain all night about a lasagna I had several years ago. Please help me locate the lasagna because I might some during my next trip. My details are sketchy but I remember the lasagna was thickly sauced (bechamel), within a few blocks of the theatre district. maybe 4th ave and 46th street. It was a very small place with two levels. It is quite dark with lots of candles. very casual and a very country grandma-ly vibe (especially the restrooms. It won some NY Magazine or similar best lasagna at some point in the past. please help!

      Haven't tried it, but New York did indeed single out Teodora's lasagna ... http://nymag.com/bestofny/food/2009/p...

      I can't help you in remembering the place. but Cinque makes a really good lasagna with the béchamel on top,,,and the best lasagna I think I've had in Manhattan in the last 2 years has been Osteria Morini.

        Let's switch gears. Can anyone recommend a fresh, summery pasta around the same area near mid-town?
