  1. Lincoln - strozzapreti con aragosta (lobster pasta with lobster and scallop sausage, tarragon and peas)

    Costata - garganelli alla fiamma (prosciutto, peas, truffle cream)

    All'Onda - garganelli with crab, citrus, tarragon and yuzu kosho

    Ristorante Morini - duck confit agnolotti

    Perla - fetuccine with oxtail ragu and porcini mushrooms

    1. Agnolotti with brown butter and sage for lunch at Babbo:


      1. Spaghetti & clam at The Clam

        When it arrived, I was a bit concerned, as the actual dish was hidden under a huge mound of arugula. It certainly wasn't the prettiest dish, but wow when we took our first bite, we realized how wrong we were to judge by appearance.

        I believe it's housemade spaghetti, as it didn't have the bite that dried pasta has - which suited the chunky & flavorsome tomato based clam sauce that had bits of clam chopped into it. Surrounding the place were huge littlenecks (some were a bit tough, but don't let that detract from the star of the dish: the sauce and the pasta).

        1. Easy for me and quite shocked it was already mentioned...
