Bustling Batali/Bastianich restaurant with hearty Italian fare
On a cold January day we snagged a table for an early dinner that night. We received a warm welcome in what immediately felt upscale and contemporary.
No wines by the glass are served, but they offer a wide selection of "caraffinos", approximately two glasses each starting at a reasonable $12 or so. We started with an escarole, walnut, red onion, and pecorino salad dressed nicely in a walnut oil vinaigrette. It was certainly large enough to share, even by more than two. We continued with two primi to share: ricotta gnocchi with sausage & fennel and bucatini al' Amatriciana. Both contained guanciale which sounds repetitive but suited us just fine. The gnocchi were indeed light and in a somewhat delicate sauce, at least compared to the very hearty and large bucatini serving. Both were mouth watering.
We persevered through a shared tartufo dessert and coffee.
A very filling meal, and somewhat of a splurge at $93 before tip. But memorable!
