Dinner at Barbuto in NYC

Risheen and I met up for dinner at Barbuto in the East Village.  So happy to have seen her and also to have finally tried the gnocchi that I have been insta-stalking for months.  Our appetizer was ehh, but the pasta dishes were both amazing.  I honestly can't say which I liked more.  Would def be back because need to try their signature chicken dish.
Calamari alla plancha - point judith squid, baby market greens and chili aioli.  The squid was well cooked, similar to grilled squid in Spain.  But the greens for some reason tasted bitter, which was a turn off
Gnocchi stagionale - gnocchi with squash, cherry tomato, sweet corn and goat cheese.  The gnocchi was so light and fluffy, with a little cripsiness.  Loved all the toppings esp the goat cheese.  Vegetarian but still loved it and wouldn't have changed a thing.  The toppings change seasonally

Bucatini alla matriciana - pancetta, onion, beefsteak tomato and pecorino.  This was honestly perfect.  I could've inhaled it but we were sharing haha
