Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Creamy polenta
$$$$, Italian, Midtown
"Perfect pastas with the best polenta in New York, all served with immaculate service and a well-rounded wine list. The creamy polenta with fricassée of truffled mushrooms is a must-order. Its rich mushroom sauce is great to dip bread into once the polenta is gone. Also, the short rib and bone marrow agnolotti, with crisp garlic chips and fresh horseradish, is not to be missed."
