Sweet potato gnocchi, the signature dish at Da Flora, is simply amazing, says fnut. Seven of them are served in sage, pancetta, and cream sauce. echo theorizes that the prime number is on purpose–it’s impossible to divide evenly, and they’re so good that uneven division will result in fights, so everybody has to get their own order.
Black Mouth cake is also highly recommended, but Chowhounds are most impressed with the impeccably selected wine list put together by the knowledgeable, enthusiastic Flora herself.
