Dinner at Barbuto in NYC

Barbuto is my other fav Italian place, and it's just as popular.  We showed up at 6 and were told there was an hour wait for the table!  So we sat at the bar, and like L'Artusi, had excellent service and just as excellent food.   Finally got to try the chicken, which was delicious but not necessarily the best chicken I've ever eaten.  Their gnocchi is though!
gnocchi stagionale: sunchoke, parsnip, chestnut & dandelion pesto 
Even without meat, easily the best gnocchi of my life

gemelli con salsiccia: spicy sausage, tomato & pecorino.  Super delicious with a definite kick

patate: potatoes, pecorino & rosemary.  Great side for the chicken.  Just  wished there were more large pieces.  Lots of little bits there were totally crispy but not much potato/mush

pollo al forno: jw chicken & salsa verde.  Great flavors but found out next day when we ate it that it wasn't fully cooked inside :(

Bread pudding.  Delicious but I was so full that Dan had to eat most of it.  He didnt mind
