First Bytes: Carbone’s Fine Food & Wine, Casual Ital opens Monday


Julian Barsotti opens his casual Italian sit-down/take-out/Sunday supper place, Carbone’s Fine Food & Wine, on Monday. (I’ve already told you about it here and here.)

Last night, Barsotti invited me in for a fitst byte.

“I’m still tweaking the menu,” Barsotti told me.

I wouldn’t change a thing. $16 for the best spaghetti Bolognese this side of Manhattan? It’s Nonna quality food at grandma pricing. This place is gonna hit big.

Scroll down, then scratch and sniff.

    Easy, TG, there’s nothing but marinated baby beets, maytag bleu cheese and apples in that picture. (Double up on your blue pills and back off on the red ones. I’ll bring you some watercress.)

    the watercress is like half the salad, man. if it is in fact watercress

    the food looks amazing. that housemade spaghetti, wow.

    one note: “marinated baby beets with maytag bleu cheese and apples”… is that watercress on top? sure looks like watercress. and yet there’s no mention of the watercress. you gonna eat that watercress? cuz if you’re not, i’d be happy to take it off your plate. love watercress
