Of course, I had to head to Williamsburg to sample Missy Robbins’ newest pasta-focused restaurant. It’s one of the hottest tickets in town. As you may know, Missy is the acclaimed chef behind Lilia, the Brooklyn restaurant; that’s what she received this year’s James Beard Best Chef: New York for…
Misi’s is near the Domino Sugar redevelopment on the East River. From it, you see the Williamsburg Bridge and the open kitchen. The restaurant offers only three things: veggie starters, pasta and gelato. Service is well-trained, as you’d expect considering Missy’s restaurant lineage.
We started with one plate piled high with marinated peppers, the other with whipped ricotta piped onto thick slices of charred bread ($15). A fun messy starter!
For the main event, we shared the strangozzi with pork tomato sauce ($23) and the anchovy-sauce topped linguine with lots of crunchy crumbs ($23).
