Our Man is sticking with pasta at Bocca, the new Flatiron restaurant from chef Salvatore Corea, of Cacio e Pepe and Spiga. Sietsema feared that the newest spawn would be the least good, but comes away very pleased with some dishes, like the spaghetti with guanciale and black truffles and the octopus appetizer, which features apples and salmon roe. We have to say, it’s hard to imagine how this dish works, but we trust Our Man.
Among the skippable, Sietsema conveniently names some of the more expensive dishes, like a shredded beef entr馥.
