MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Luciano De Crescenzo wrote dreamily about “gatto’ di patate” in Frijenno Magnanno, his anthology of Neapolitan dishes, and indeed, the potato cake at this "pasta bar" is bang on. Throw in a sweet little location on burgeoning Sherman Avenue, and it's hard not to love this neighborhood spot. Begin your meal with the aforementioned regional dish, featuring a béchamel sauce blended with potatoes and cubes of pancetta. Then move on to more gorgeous items, like the paccheri 'o rrau'-toothsome tube-shaped pasta laced with a sumptuous tomato ragù that is crowned by parmesan and basil. For a heartier dinner, try your hand at the pollo del faito, a pair of tender chicken breasts topped with cherry tomatoes, pancetta and spicy chili pepper flakes.
