Where to eat Cacio e Pepe in Manhattan
I'm just back from Rome and I need a cacio e pepe fix!
I'm familiar with the restaurant of that name on Second Avenue in Manhattan but I've never eaten there. Any opinions on their cacio e pepe?
Where do CH's go for good cacio e pepe in Manhattan?
Thanks kathryn, I've checked out previous posts on CH about Cacio e Pepe, including the one you linked to. My preference is not what the OP described which is:
"My husband is obsessed with the dish "cacio e pepe" of Roman fare, the thicker and more gravy-like the better."
I am NOT looking for a 'gravy' consistency. To me, the best cacio e pepe in rome was pasta with a nice thick coating of cheese and black pepper (nothing that would be described as 'gravy').
I also love cacio e pepe. I often have it at it's name sake restaurant on 2nd ave. because it's in my neighborhood. I've also loved the one at Eately at the pasta bar. Though I've never had it at Lupa there pasta is generally fabulous. If you're ever in New Paltz, NY you will not be disappointed at A Tavola's version.
Just saw the post re Maialino and I'm going there on Wed. So really looking forward to trying their version.
