Lupa Osteria Romana (NYC: West Village)

By in 03: NYC, Favorite Food Entries

We tried more celebrity chef’s famous restaurant, the next night was Lupa from Mario Batali, whom LA only get a taste recently with Mozza. We reserved two weeks ahead and got a 10:30pm spot.

The vibe is cozy and friendly, and a look at the menu…oh my…I want to order everything!

Veggie and Fish of the day.

Oxtail Terrain, juicy and delicate, very delicious~

Highlight of the dinner: Pork Shoulder with Rose Petal Glassato $18, this is so incredible…tender, melty and fragranced with sweet floral flavor. Even my Pesco-vegetarian friend can’t help devouring this. It’s so small portion though.

A seasonal dish not on regular menu: Buckwheat Spaghetti. Nutty texture. Very tiny portion as well.

Everything on the menu sounds so good that it lures you wanting to come back again and again to try everything. I’m instantly a Mario Batali fan. My friend from NY also highly recommended Batali’s more high end restaurant Del Posto. Anyhow Lupa would be a must for me whenever I visit NYC.

    Vero I don’t know what’s best in Lupa, I saw other table where everyone just got their own bowl of pasta ^^;;. You should try their lamb and more traditional pasta, just to see how good they are.
