Recommend Dishes: CHARRED OCTOPUS rice beans, chorizo, chicories / BRANZINO IN CARTOCCIO confit potatoes, cerignola olives, citrus / SWEETBREADS rhubarb, orange, apple

Seat: I would definitely recommend to sit at the chef’s counter for a party of 2.

Previous Review: https://cutiepatroller.com/2012/01/22/dell-anima/

Dell’anima is one of my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. Decor and atmosphere are nothing spacial yet cozy and really great Toscan Italian food. I sometime visit their sister restaurants, L’artusi in West Village and L’apicio in East Village but Dell’anima is still my favorite of those three restaurants. Dell’Anima is known for their pasta dishes but I never care for them. My top three dishes are CHARRED OCTOPUS rice beans, chorizo, chicories / BRANZINO IN CARTOCCIO confit potatoes, cerignola olives, citrus / SWEETBREADS rhubarb, orange, apple. Also I highly recommend sitting at the counter right in front of the kitchen to see chef Elwood and his team in action.

From Restaurant:

”This little stretch of Bleecker Street has been home to our cheese shop for decades, but it wasn’t until we opened Murray’s Cheese Bar in 2012 that we could host our friends and neighbors for brunch, lunch, and dinner.  Or cheese anytime of day!  Our menu boasts cheeses plucked right from our cheese caves beneath Bleecker Street. Come by for a cheese plate you’ll fantasize about later, or a full dinner of baked, grilled, melted cheeses and more, along with wine and craft beer.

Founded in 1940 by Murray Greenberg, Murray’s is proud to be a Greenwich Village business and part of the neighborhood’s rich food history.  Owner Rob Kaufelt bought Murray’s in the early ‘90s and transformed the downtown flagship store into a destination for food lovers.  He filled the cheese case with rare finds from around the world, built cheese caves to age and ripen cheese, and hosted regular classes in our classroom.  And the people keep coming back!  Murray’s also now ships cheese and gifts nationwide on our web site, works with chefs nationwide through our wholesale business, and brings good cheese to cheese counters in Grand Central Terminal and within supermarkets nationwide.”
