al di là

not only is their musical name nearly a wonderful palindrome but the food is insane. its always packed here and with good reason. on the corner of fifth and carroll. Fat Venetian malfatti. these handmade Swiss-chard gnocchi are so popular, they're actually closed every Tuesday so they can make more of these gorgeous little things. supply and demand. ieri sera i had the red beet ravioli which was so good, i think it killed a few brain cells. we had an orgasmic 3 orange salad, the winter white salad, oh and for dessert we had the black pepper and earl gray gelato. "are u fucking kidding me?!" thats my restaurant review. i'm sure you all know about this spot if you live around here. while you're waiting for your food, look up and marvel at that original ceiling.
