Eating pasta may not be the first thing that comes to mind when it’s day 42 of 100-degree temperatures, but Il Brutto wants to change that. This restaurant on East Sixth serves simple Italian food in a space that works great for everything from a double date to a birthday dinner (and there’s even a patio for when you feel like braving the heat). Start any meal here with some prosciutto and burrata, then share a pizza and some pastas, like the pici and the pappardelle - even if it’s still 100 degrees out at 8pm.
