WHY didn't someone tell me to go to Angeli?

Oh, I know you've mentioned it. But why didn't someone sit me down and say "You really, really need to go to Angeli, NOW?" Taken by friends, I have eaten at Louise's Trattoria 3 times, fergoodnesssake, and it is about a 2 minute walk from Angeli.

Anyway, we went there last night. Everything was just wonderful. A truly good pizza margherita with a thin crisp crust, a perfect arugula salad with shiny black olives perched on the edge, and sun-dried tomato ricotta gnocchi that were so light that they flew out of the kitchen on tiny wings and landed on my plate. Also a garlicky sautee of spinach and tiny broccoli rabe that was just bitter enough.

It was one of the best meals I have had in a long time, and I eat pretty well.
