Blogger’s Choice: Pasta at Perla

  • Perla

    24 Minetta Ln., nr. Sixth Ave.; 212-933-1824

    “I love pasta; I order it everywhere. At Perla, you can’t make a wrong pasta choice. A recent fave on the frequently changing menu: cavatelli tossed with a meaty, slightly tomato-y duck ragù. What really makes this sublime is the frozen-foie-gras garnish grated tableside all over the top, which makes the dish even richer and ever-so-slightly funky.” —Kate Krader, restaurant editor at Food & Wine and contributor to its Mouthing Off blog.
