Mercato Red Hook

I'm not a fan. Despite advertising, in part, as a "pasta shop" (see the photo on the home page of their website), I stopped in to buy their highly regarded pasta. After being sized up by a disinterested staff, a bothered waitress made her way into the kitchen. Several minutes later, she returned with a package of dry linguine claiming it was "gourmet." I would have understood if they didn't have any fresh pasta for sale, but don't treat customers like an ignorant tourist. The public is much more thoughtful and discerning these days (thanks to sites like chowhound, no doubt)..
