L’Artusi New York Review

Our Rating

L’Artusi is my other must visit while in the city. A perfect day includes ABC Kitchen for lunch and L’Artusi for dinner. I just dream of their amazing pastas….and always fun to dine with three guys as we usually order crazy amounts of food and I can try a lot.

What we ate:

Scallops crudo with sea salt, olive oil, lemon: So fresh, tasted literally off the boat

Hamachi tartare, white gazpacho, grapes, almonds: Not as good as scallops but refreshing and lovely

Roasted mushrooms with pancetta, fried egg, ricotta salata: Hearty and perfect for the snowy day

Mushrooms+fried egg

Mushrooms+fried egg

Whipped ricotta special: Creamy, great crackers with it

Orecchiette with sausage, salumi and pecorino: I am not an orecchietti fan but this one converted me, best pasta      hands down

Bucatini with tomato, pancetta and pecorino (aka alla matriciana): Great home-made bucatini but the      orecchietti was tastier, still very good, amazing sauce

Two pastas

Special ricotta ravioli: Not as flavourful

Octopus with potatoes,chilies and pancetta: A bit too rubbery so not a favourite

Octopus, was so much better in person than picture

Branzino: too dry, and maybe too healthy

Olive oil cake, creme fraiche mousse: Not usually a fan of olive oil cake but super moist and tasty

Hazelnut chocolate torta, praline crunch, salted caramel gelato: Hard to go wrong with all those great ingredient

Pumpkin tiramisu with mascarpone mousse: They sent on the house and was surprisingly good, seasonal and comfort food at its best

Seasonal and tasty tiramisu

In Sum

  • Must: Orecchiette and scallops crudo
