REVIEW

When the world is devolving into a dystopian nightmare it's good to know Tipo 00 is there ready with a soul-warming plate of pasta and a glass of something interesting, most likely grown on Mount Etna. An island of solace from everyday cares, this always-rammed pasta bar has a preternatural sense of what people want. And what do they want exactly? A bowl of fried and braised Jerusalem artichokes and parsnips with goats' curd, a dish that squishes and crunches in all the right places, or a kingfish crudo with pops of salmon roe and the fermented sucker punch of black garlic. And pasta, of course. Casarecce with pork sausage enlivened by the subtle agrodolce touches of white wine and radicchio; fat ricotta tortellini enriched with a cloak of nettle purée and mascarpone. There are meat-based main courses, too, but we say choose carbs, choose life.
