From My Menu

Chef Pichet Ong reviews Melanzane e cioccolato alla Napoletana at Del Posto
$$$$ | Italian
Chelsea, Meatpacking District
"Eggplant in a dessert is only something I trust in the hands of the right pastry chef. Brooks Headley's version at Del Posto is utterly delicious. It's a Neopolitan dessert made of chocolate and eggplant cooked in a panini press and served with sheep’s milk ricotta stracciatella gelato, salt, and olive oil. It's simple and to the point."
Chef Joey Campanaro reviews Green garganelli w/ Bolognese ragu at Del Posto
$$$$ | Italian
Chelsea, Meatpacking District
"This pasta, consisting of handmade green garganelli with Bolognese ragù, is my number one crave in the city. I love it for lunch, which is the only time it's available. For such an upscale restaurant, I think it's the best deal in town."
Chef Gabriel Thompson  reviews Lingua salumi at Lupa
$$$ | Italian
Greenwich Village
"Found in the salumi (cured meats) section on the menu, the lingua (tongue) is salty and sweet and always perfect with raw onion. A great dish and made in-house. Just be wary of the waits."
Chef Gabriel Thompson  reviews Spaghetti w/ Dungeness crab at Del Posto
$$$$ | Italian
Chelsea, Meatpacking District
"Mark Ladner is a genius. This is the best pasta dish in the city and the best way to indulge in both crab and pasta. It's rich, spicy, and decadent. Plus, the service as Del Posto makes you feel like a rock star!"
