5 Bleecker St. New York, NY 10012 | Greenwich Village | 212-260-4666

Location Description:

The decor may resemble an English farmhouse in a television commercial, but the food is Emilia-Romagnan, including hot puffy fritters called gnocco, paired with prosciutto, salami, and other cured pork products, and cotechino, a delectable boiled sausage sided with mashed potatoes rather than the traditional lentils. The best pasta is not the expected tagliatelle alla bolognese, but gramigna ("grass")--double-long macaroni elbows sauced with crumbled fennel sausage and strips of sweet red pepper. The seafood frito misto, served on a bed of fried squash and eggplant, also deserves plaudits.
