One of the first things Mike and I noticed about our new building was the little Italian restaurant on the block. Carbone Ristorante is in the middle of the Garment District on a side street, so I can’t imagine they get a great amount of foot traffic, however, I was happy to see a new place to try that was so convenient!
I went with the Homemade Fettuccine with Artichokes, Smoked Ham, and Cherry Tomatoes. It was good, but nothing great. The artichokes tasted very dull, though the smoked ham was tasty.
Mike went with the special of homemade pappardelle with rabbit ragu. I would say the same went for this dish. Good but nothing great.
Overall, the only real victory Carbone has is that they’re close. It wasn’t great and the prices were average to a little higher than average for NYC fine Italian. We took a peak at the dessert menu and nothing really called to us… so we got Ben & Jerry’s ice cream pops on the way home.
