L'Apicio
 Super Pink Lipstick Sunday at L’Apicio

Photo

I had great Sunday dinner at this modern Italian restaurant in the East Village. This large restaurant has sleek and minimalist deco. L’Apicio is run by same peoples who run Dell’ Anima and L’Artusi in West Village. L’Apicio is known for their pasta dishes as is Dell’Anima yet I didn’t order any pasta dishes this time ……I wasn’t in the mood for it. Guess what!!! When I blogged about Dell’ Anima in the past the polenta dish was the only dish that disappointed and I gave one heart rating but this time at L’Apicio I have to take it back!!! They serve four different kind of polenta Alla Spianatora and I had roasted mushroom and it was so yummy ~ Next time I will try their famous pasta dishes so stay tuned…… xoxo
