Vetri tomorrow night - best a la carte dishes?

annamikemc | Aug 2, 2009 09:58 AM

Hi all, we are going for a last minute celebratory dinner tomorrow night at Vetri (promotion - yay!) and need some guidance with the a la carte choices.

I've heard the crepe and gnocchi are great, so those are probably our app choices unless someone has other suggestions. However, what are the best pastas? The almond tortellini with white truffle sauce is listed as one of their signature pastas, but what about the others?

eggplant casoncelli with basil and brown butter
fettuccine with octopus bolognese
fazzoletti with duck ragu and black olives
chicken liver ravioli with trumpet royale mushrooms
fennel pollen sausage ravioli with bitter greens
tonnarelli with heirloom tomatoes and basil

For entrees, the goat seems to be popular...are there any others that are recommended? And how are desserts? None are listed online.
