Last thursday, i went for my 3rd visit to Babbo (http://www.babbonyc.com), and it was every bit as exciting and amazing as the last 2 times. We took a gamble and tried the pasta tasting menu (http://www.babbonyc.com/menu2.html#tasting), and it turned out to be simply marvelous. the 1st dish , Black Tagliatelle with Charred Corn and Castelmagno, competed for my affection, but it was the 5th dish, the Pappardelle Bolognese, that stole my heart. the service was wonderful, as always, and the soundtrack included "Yoshime vs. The Pink Robots" by The Flaming Lips. if ya got the dough, you gotta go. i'm just saying.
