NYC is in love with Italian food. There are Italian restaurants all over this town, and new ones are popping up on a weekly basis. I popped into the brand new Spasso in the West Village for a truly satisfying quick bite last week.
Charred octopus, ($13) with cucumbers, yogurt, and mint was perfect. I loved that char!
Crispy Eggplant Arancini ($7), with whipped housemade ricotta, and roasted tomato was delicious!
Seafood Stufato ($24), with prawns, mussels, clams, fennel, had wonderful flavor and was great!
If you are a pasta lover like I am, then I highly recommend the Ricotta Strascinari ($20), with braised duck leg, and smoked scamorza. Perfectly cooked pasta, with extremely tasty duck, put me in pasta heaven.
