My food blogger friend Lord of the folk invited me to join him for five-course Mexican tasting menu at Hecho En Dumbo another night. I came here few years ago for regular dinner but I didn’t know about their tasting menu at chef’s counter room. Overall great food and price isn’t bad. Best dish was Chile Relleno/Stuffed chile and Langostinos Petroleros with squid ink! Also we had a two complimentary dishes from the chef. Tuna Tartare and Veal Sweetbreads. I enjoyed Sweetbread very much. (^_^)

L’Artusi is owned by the same people who run Dell’ Anima in West Village and L’Apicio in East Village. I blogged about those two places in the past and they are both fantastic Italian restaurants but I must say L’Artusi is all time my favorite. This place got a great foods and sleek atmosphere. I always choose random entree and pasta dishes but my favorite apettizers are Scallop Crudo and Roasted wild mushrooms with fried egg. I don’t have any favorite pasta but they are known for fresh pasta dish so you should order at least one pasta dish.
Ps – The place is two story restaurant so you should let them know which room you prefer when you make reservation. I like both upstair and downstair (^_^)
