La Pecora Bianca is like an Italian version of The Smith - it’s never going to be a destination spot, but it’s a very useful fallback. The pastas are good, but we like the charcuterie and antipasti best (the creamy burrata with ramp pesto, in particular), and it’s very possible to make a full dinner out of shareable small plates, especially if you come with just one other person and sit at the long bar. Keep this in mind for just about any situation - whether you’re with clients, parents, friends, or a date.

La Pecora Bianca

A pleasant Italian restaurant in Nomad that makes all of its pasta from whole grains, we don’t love La Pecora Bianca, but we can accept it.

The Smith

The Smith is a chain restaurant that started in the East Village, and it’s sort of like a mid-tier sedan. Not too flashy, but it gets the job done.

Totto Ramen East

This city needs more ramen restaurants like it needs more privileged people, but we're getting more of both anyway. At least we're getting the right kind of ramen...
