MICHELIN Guide 2020

MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Despite its age, Gennaro hasn’t lost its good looks or popularity—it still packs in hungry locals nightly who aren’t deterred by its borderline gritty surrounds or no-reservations policy. Come early or risk waiting, which isn’t so bad considering their bar, whose by-the-glass offerings are vast and very appealing with both familiar and unusual Italian choices. The menu can be overwhelming considering its long list of pastas and daily specials, so trust your gut and you can’t go wrong. Start with the polenta, served almost quattro stagione-style, with Gorgonzola, prosciutto, and sliced portobellos; before twirling your taste buds around chewy bucatini showered with pecorino and pepper. The tiramisu is a light, creamy, and fluffy slam dunk.
