I’ve always been a carbaholic, but man, I’ve really been getting my pasta binge over the past few weeks. Back in December, I visited Supper for a evening of pasta with food Instagrammer Rebecca Chews NYC.
Located in East Village, Supper feels rustic and lively. The wooden communal tables are great for groups, while the romantic feel is nice for a cozy date night. We were seated along the bar with a great view of all the action in the kitchen.
I expected this place to be a decent neighborhood spot for a casual Italian meal, but Supper exceeded my expectations. The portions were also larger than I expected. Even though Rebecca and I are pasta lovers, we had a tough time finishing everything!
We were offered a small complimentary appetizer of marinated white beans and bread. Not bad, very garlicky. It had been a long day, so I got one of the cocktails ($13), which was decent. Wine would probably have been the better route to go for this place.
Appetizer #1 was the mozzarella di bufala ($4.95). You can never go wrong with mozzarella, juicy ripe tomatoes, and fresh basil. I can’t remember the last time I had fresh mozzarella, and this was the good stuff.
Appetizer #2 was a shaved mushrooms and celery salad with slices of pecorino toscano ($11.95). I enjoy all the components of this dish, and the pecorino sure was tasty, but the ingredients didn’t really come together. The dressing was also extremely tart.
We ordered the heavily Instagrammed spaghetti al limone ($11.95). Bouncy spaghetti, fresh lemon juice, olive oil, and parmigiano reggiano. It sounds so simple, but it was delicious! This would be lovely in the summertime.
At Supper, there’s a different risotto every day of the week. On Thursdays, they serve a pear and gorgonzola risotto. I’m a fan of pairing those ingredients together, and with the perfectly cooked risotto, it was oh so amazing. Definitely try the risotto if you’re dining at Supper!
