“Bar Primi can feel a bit like good old-fashioned Italian home cooking, what with the casually set tables, the deeply gamey lamb amatriciana in tangles of chewy bucatini and the piles of spaghetti in tomato sauce with snowy peaks of Parmigiano. But the magic is of course, that it’s not home cooking.”
“Instead of upscale burgers and chicken potpies, the bar foods of choice are antipasti and pastas, which look simple enough on the menu but are prepared by Carmellini and his chief pasta lieutenant, Sal Lamboglia, in various inviting ways.”
“Leave it to Carmellini, Josh Pickard and Luke Ostrom, the team behind Locanda Verde, Lafayette and The Dutch, to give New York what it wants, which in this case is a late night pasta parlor where you and a buddy can eat and drink well.”
“There are even meatballs filled with melted fontina in a rough tomato sauce. You want them to taste handmade, honest and delicious. They do.”
