Overview:

Husband and wife chef team Scott Tacinelli and Angie Rito are bringing a fresh new concept to the West Village. The former restaurant space has been modernized, white-washed with marble floors and rich blue & gold accents. The menu is updated Italian, a genre the duo previously nailed at Quality Italian. You'll find reinvented Italian-American family favorites like spicy antipasti, bbq calimari and tonnato vitello. Their pastas are undoubtedly the star, specifically the lasanga for 2, sliced down and broiled so that every bite comes with a cheesy crust bite.

Overview:

Rossopomodoro is a charming café on Greenwich St in the West Village. The interior is a clean, simple version of an upscale pizzeria. The space is deceptively large with two main dining rooms, a large bar and patio seating on 2 sides. Food is Neopolitan style with plenty of pastas and pizzas on the menu. For your pizza selection choose from sausage, porchetta, broccoli rabe, and spicy salami to name a few. There pasta list is equally long with gnocco, tagliatelle, and ravioli. You can also entirely avoid the carbs and opt for great seafood options like their expertly grilled octopus with silky cauliflower puree. For brunch, the place is a calm respite from the insanity that ensues in other West Village locations.

Nobody is Perfect

IMG_8777.jpg

Overview:

Nobody's Perfect is the 3rd restaurant from the team behind 2 other neighborhood spots, Pardon My French and Chou Chou. This is a tough location, as it is the 5th restaurant in this space in 10 years. The current owners have done a magnificent job decorating the sprawling space and making it feel inviting in spite of its large size. The design is industrial chic with tons of decorative tile, hard wood and exposed brick. The menu is mainly Italian with signature dishes like whole roasted chicken and carbonara which arrives in a hollowed-out wheel of pecorino. Starters like calamari, meatballs and burrata are all under $14. They also serve a list of pizzas that come from their central wood fired oven. Bottomless brunch is served on weekends for $30 but be forewarned it's cash only.

The large, sun drenched corner restaurant is consistently packed with beautiful diners and bar goers for 3 meals/day. The bleached wood and white Christmas lights above are a lifestyle Instagram account dream. The Italian menu was built for sharing; full of the the best little bites. Graze on a selection of focaccia, samuli, cheeses and verdure (little antipasti) like chickpeas and eggplant caponata. You can select from 5 house made pastas including cavatelli and orecchiette and they even offer a gluten free option. Beer & wine only, good vibes all around.

Casa Apicii  


Overview:

Tucked inside a townhouse on residential 9th street lays a pretty magnificent surprise. You'd never guess that inside is a glamorous, chic restaurant with 2 story high ceilings, velvet gold chairs and towering chandeliers. The menu is seasonal, regional Italian cooking. The vegetable heavy antipasti section offers a lot to choose from like cauliflower with sicilian pesto, snap peas, and burrata. The star is the pasta and there are 7 options like fresh tagliatelle, bucatini, and strozzapreti. The surroundings are opulent but the food feels comforting. The second floor houses a hip speakeasy featuring aperitivo-based and classic cocktail recipes. I highly recommend you go to immediately.

Fiaschetteria "Pistoia"


Overview 

My god this place is so quaint & cute it looks like an Italian grandma's house threw up all over it (like in an adorable way). The newly opened Fiaschetteria Pistoia is a traditional Tuscan restaurant new to the East Village with maybe 15 tables and a small bar. The moment you walk in you feel the cozy romance of the space. The food is simple & rustic; everything you'd want to eat with good bread and several glasses of wine (in my case a whole bottle). The prosciutto is shaved paper thin and their burrata is fresh & creamy. The pastas are made in house so they arrive perfectly chewy and with few ingredients needed. My favorite was the spaghetti pomodoro. If you can make something that simple taste so special, I'm yours for life.
