An Atlantan in New York: Italiano

Pepe Rosso To Go: West Village, Manhattan, NY, NY, USA

My dear friend brought me here for a quick bite and said it was one of the best Italian food for a great price in the city. It is right up my alley, a small little hole-in-the-wall with minimal seating, but fresh pasta served daily. It is originally a to-go spot but we managed to score a seat for two in their limited seating.

Things ordered:

Tagliatelle with meat sauce
– great quantity
– fresh
– not overly seasoned
– pasta cooked perfectly

– not shareable (HAHA)



Apple arugula salad
– good balance between salad ingredients
– not overly dressed
– generous with cheese

– none



– crazy amount, definitely shareable
– solid amount of cocoa to liquor

– a little heavy on the cream side



Would I come here again? Most definitely. Great place, very affordable, and the most friendliest staff. There is self-serve olive-oil and balsalmic vinegar as well with house foccacia. The house foccacia is amazing! Lightly crunchy outside with a soft fluffy inside. I definitely recommend this.  You can find them here:

149 Sullivan St
New York, NY 10012

(b/t Prince St & Houston St)

As much as I love being in this city with my new extended East Coast family and my third home on the east coast who has fed me so well, we’ll be moving onto some new adventures in no other than San Francisco, California soon.  There will also be a small little intercession with my week in Hawaii so keep your eyes peeled!

Happy eating!
