We're truly #blessed to live in a place where just about anything can be delivered to us, at more or less any time of the day. This #blessing now includes that time of the day (i.e. NOW) when our bodies cry out for delicious noodles. Michael White, whose Altamarea Group runs some very pasta-friendly restaurants, has answered New York City's call for more carbs with a new "Pasta On Demand" service through UberEATS. This is the best delivery innovation since that burrito operation.
White's restaurant Ristorante Morini serves as the delivery point, executing a menu of six pastas. "We aimed to create a menu that captures some of Altamarea's signature pastas," White said in the announcement. "We curated dishes that can be delivered to users' doorsteps in a timely manner, while still providing the same high-quality and consistency we offer in our restaurants."
Among the selections are a simple rigatoni in a tomato and basil sauce ($14) to the more adventurous creste pasta (curly "rooster's crest" shape) made with squid ink and tossed with a shrimp and calamari ragu with breadcrumbs. Additionally, they'll deliver a handful of salads (guilt assuagers) and desserts (the opposite).
Delivery's only available in Manhattan but the range spans from 26th Street to 135th Street.
