Gnocchi quest

Katie | Feb 18, 200304:33 PM

I had a fantastic food experience I can't shake and need a fix. I had an ABSOLUTELY AMAZING plate of gnocchi in a parmesan cream sauce a little while ago at TRU. They were unreal - light yet satisfying, not heavy, gummy or chewy as gnocchi can sometimes be. The sauce was just beautiful and had me seriously considering licking my plate (classy, huh?) You can get a plate surprising clean with a fork and some real determination. This dish was a real credit to the chef(s).

Now, TRU isn't exactly in my budget - or anywhere in the ballpark - in the near future but I need a fix. Where can one get some really amazing gnocchi these days?

I searched the site but didn't really find anything specific to this. Maybe I didn't do the search right but I did find a few mentions buried in other Italian restaurant recommendations. Finestra di Calo and Genaro's on Taylor sounded the most promising.

What do you think? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
