Anniversary Dinner in NYC

We went into NYC today to celebrate our 4th anniversary.  (Had to put it off a week because of last weeks unexpected October Snow Storm) We decided we wanted to try Otto a restaurant that Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich  (Lidia's son)  opened in 2003.

Modeled to look like an Italian train station, OTTO, meaning "eight" in Italian, is located on the corner of 8th Street and Fifth Avenue, in the historic One Fifth Avenue building, just steps away from
Washington Square Park.  OTTO has combined the elegance of an Italian enoteca with the fun bustle of a crowded Italian train station.

With marble-topped standing tables, the enoteca area is great for meeting new people and for grabbing drinks and antipasti with a group of friends.

We both loved the salad we chose. It was so good!  It is called the OTTO salad.

Here's hubby he ordered the Pasta Alla Norma - it had grilled eggplant. He shared with me - it was really delicious.

Here I am - I had Quattro Stagioni Pizza.  So good.  Split in 4 - mushrooms, artichokes, Italian ham, peppers. Thin crunchy crust.

We gave it a two thumbs up - and would definitely eat there again !
