Foursquare Tips

  • A perfect date spot - start off with the mussels and move on to any of the pasta selections on the menu. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check.
  • The latest venture from Porchettas Sara Jenkins is this date-nightfriendly spot. Sample one of the unfussy pasta dishes, like anneloni rings tossed with mustard greens and house-made lamb sausage.
  • The mussels are fantastic. I may come back and just sit at the bar w/ mussels, bread and wine. ps: lamb ragu pasta + clam spaghetti also great.
  • Sit at the bar, order the mussels, and let the bartender recommend a good red wine.
  • My tip: don't bother.
  • One of the most eagerly-awaited downtown openings of the year is Sara Jenkins latest, where shell augment her porchetta with homey dishes like lasagna al forno. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!
  • try the lasagna, it's traditional Tuscan and delicious!
  • Brunch options include French toast with Nutella, orange-ricotta pancakes, fried eggs with porchetta hash, and a seared pork chop with polenta.
  • The food was delicious, but I can help being disappointed when I go out of a restaurant feeling I can eat something more. For the price the portion are a little bit too tiny.
  • Try the green-bean salad. Crisp stalks of green beans, fried almonds, raw fennel and celery heart join forces in this crunchy, satisfying tangle. Its one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
  • Dry pasta cooked to order, the right way, by a chef who knows the difference. That's all the reason you need to eat here.
  • pay with Cover!
