I'm still amazed that SD26 is our "neighborhood" restaurant. I had yet another wonderful dinner last week with my husband and daughter. Although some of the new menu appetizers were enticing, my daughter and I could not pass up our favorite uovo. It seems a little expensive for one ravioli but once you have experienced this pillow of heaven, I'm sure you would agree that it is totally worth it. Delicate round pasta pocket filled with creamy ricotta cheese (and wait for it) an egg yolk which is perfectly cooked so at the first cut it oozes out to mix with the butter and truffle creating a rich delicious sauce. While we waited for our entrees, the activity of Chef Matteo and his staff in the open kitchen kept me entertained. My saddle of rabbit did not disappoint. The best part of the rabbit infused with herbs, tender and succulent. There wasn't much sharing going on at our table, but I managed a taste of my husband's whole wheat fettucine with lamb ragu and my daughter's veal fillet with pancetta cream and cippolini onions. Now I know what to order on our next visit. The evening wouldn't have been complete without a sweet sampling of desserts and a visit from both Marisa & Tony May. Thanks SD26 for being our little piece of heaven in the Flatiron District!
