What could be better than a plate full of pasta on a Sunday?
Sharing it with one of your best friends!
Following our delicious dinner at Fig & Olive on Friday night, I met Virginia and her mom for MoMA on Sunday...then we headed to Becco, Lidia Bastianich's restaurant in the West 40s.
They do a "sinfonia di pasta" tasting where you get unlimited servings of three pastas, plus a salad or antipasto, for $19. Sign us up!
Since there were three of us, the waiter offered to bring us both a sampling of antipasto and a Caesar salad. I think this first one is some kind of smoked fish, and the second one is octopus. Both delicious!
Virginia promised me she won't wait until November for her next visit!
