just got back from here: Puttanesca, Italian Restaurants in NYC
lunch was fantastic. i've already been asked to get take out to bring home after work one night.
it was a little fancier than i'd like for a 3 year old, but we sat by the (now incredibly finger printed) window, so all of the hustle and bustle of the city kept the little guy busy. i wonder what we're gonna do when he loses interest in firetrucks, busses, rickshaws, and handsome cabs?
anyway, we started with the bruschetta di polpo, then split a ziti alla sicilliana.
finally, dw and i each had a paninni - one with chicken, buffala mozz, basil pesto and sundried tomatoes; the other with a portobello, eggplant, red pepper, fontina and artichoke pesto.
