Of a Sunday afternoon, for my money, nothing tastes better than an authentic Italian antipasto plate for two, lingered over with a glass of wine or an ice-cold pint of draft beer.
But I'm finding it difficult to locate a great antipasto plate in NYC.
To be specific, when I say antipasto plate, I mean those artists' palettes served up by creative chefs with a little bit of everything -- from the best prosciuttos and cheeses and olives to tuna and capers and marinated onions and pickles and -- well you name it, just a plate of complementary flavors to nibble on with some good crusty bread.
Can any chowhound help me? I am on the UES, but would venture pretty much anywhere in Manhattan or to Brooklyn Heights, Carroll Gardens or Williamsburg if someone told me that was the place to go. (I already love Acqua Santa in W'burg for dinner but I haven't noticed a great antipasto plate on their menu).
