Buon Ricordo

There's no surer way to reveal you're not a regular than to order the signature truffled-egg fettuccine all for yourself. Look around Buon Ricordo and you'll soon see that the tables of scions, tyros and celebs dotted about the tiled, art-strewn villa-style room all share a similar game plan, and it goes like this: go big on the first courses, but share, then split a main course and spend any money you have left on wine. That could mean working from a Negroni-inspired crudo of beautifully cut kingfish, cured in gin and vermouth and strewn with fine slivers of candied orange peel and crystals of Campari, to a pasta (if truffle products aren't your thing, perhaps the ultra-Neapolitan timballo, made with rigatoni, meatballs and quail eggs), to a mighty meaty main such as the goat braised on the bone with peas and egg. Go large on tarry, perfumed Langhe nebbiolo, all the better to savour the courtly service, and close with vin santo and biscotti.
