Da andrea is not something I just tried for the first time. In a city with 32,473 dining options (I counted – no, I dont need to get a life, I love counting) the list of new places to try greatly overpowers the short list of places I keep coming back to. I’m always so tempted to try something new. And then there’s Da Andrea, the one place that became a family annual. The only place.
I’ll make it simple here with Da Andrea, skip the mambo jumbo and just tell you what to order. I really hope I spelled mumbo jumbo correctly as I’m still new to this blogging thing and I dont want to embarrass myself. I also have trouble with “Brouhaha” but I’m not gonna need to use it unless I run out of food description adjectives and say something like ” there was a brouhaha in my mouth” – lets hope we dont go there. But I digress, here it goes… sorry got no pictures here, just google em…
Le Tigelle – Made on the spot buns of heaven, with prosciutto imported from Parma. Tried this in other spots – Feh! Oh oh did I mention that the owners/cooks are from Emilia Romagna, the food capital of earth.
Grilled Calamari – Yum!
Homemade Pappardelle with sweet sausage – So good! a brouhaha in my mouth!!! with that truffle oil essence, cooked to perfection goodness. A must for me each time I’m there and I’m craving it right now.
Homemade is the name of the game here. Homemade Gnocchi, Cavatelli, Ravioli to name a few. I’m shocked at how low the prices are for this stuff. Da Andrea is my favorite cheap Italian in New York city
