Profile

When your faithful, overfed critic penned his somewhat tepid review of Ignacio Mattos’s crowded, relentlessly hyped new Soho outpost, Café Altro Paradiso, the small-plates menu had a random, even scattershot feel to it; the room was a cacophonic madhouse; and, perhaps most important, the restaurant had yet to open for lunch. So imagine my surprise when I returned one fall afternoon to find the sun streaming through the tall windows in a most pleasant way. Instead of having to shout to be heard over the gathering din, my guests and I could converse in our normal voices, and the more focused menu was filled with all sorts of simple rustico Mediterranean dishes that matched the peaceful mood of the room, like a swordfish tonnato crostini, and servings of fried eggs dusted with bottarga.

Ideal Meal

Ravioli di ricotta, swordfish, apple crostata
