La Pecora Bianca | Review by Alana Robin
We all know I love pasta more than most things, and La Pecora Bianca is no different. Today I'll be giving a quick review of the New York City hotspot known for their local ingredients and vibrant vibes.
Reasons to Love La Pecora Bianca:
They are on opentable (hello, easy reservations!)
They have multiple, convenient locations (including a lunch spot!)
THEY HAVE RICOTTA WITH TRUFFLE HONEY (no further comment required.)
Find the menu here!
Find the restaurant at...
Nomad (26th and Broadway)
Midtown (50th and 2nd Ave)
UrbanSpace (51st and Lexington)
What I Ordered
Appetizer: We ordered the Ricotta Toast which was a rich, whipped ricotta with truffle honey and some chilli powder. The flavors were insane - a perfect blend of sweet a savory. The appetizer was the right size to split for two, which I would recommend. It would be a lot of cheese for one!
Entree: The Campanelle pasta with roasted wild mushrooms, arugula pesto, confit, and pecorino was more than impressive. While I love pasta and am easily please, I can differentiate between a "simple, yet nice" and a "freshly made, flavorful masterpiece" of a dish. This one was the latter. Would highly recommend checking it out if you go anytime soon.
I also must confess...I am a sucker for a fun pasta shape! Anybody else have a bag of gigli pasta in their pantry?
Vibrant and fun!
My friend and I went the other night after work and it was CROWDED. It was a wide variety of groups of friends and couples surrounded by the fun modern decor.
It was lively for a Thursday night, so I would definitely recommend making a reservation.
Who I'd Recommend Going With
For the Nomad and Midtown locations, I think this is a great spot to grab brunch or dinner with friends! It was a little crowded and loud to be a go to date spot, but definitely a great place to catch up and see the scene.
For the UrbanSpace location, go with anyone anytime! I love UrbanSpace as a lunch spot and an easy place to grab dinner on the way home. I haven't tried La Pecora Bianca at UrbanSpace, but if its half as good as the restaurant it will certainly be better than your typical, workday lunch salad.
