Tucked away in Nolita, the Torresi brothers set up shop on Mulberry Street. The place has an old school feel, somewhat cramped on the inside but the food that is being produced is wonderful. I will definitely return when I am back in NYC to try their popular chicken Saratoga sandwich but the Meatball parm is undeniably the best thing I have ever in a while.
Meatball Parm on a Roll
This was epic! The meatball itself consisted of veal, beef and sweet Italian sausage. This created this medley of flavours that is beyond any other meatball parm I have ever tasted. Even better with melted mozzarella, fresh basil and a sweet, tangy tomato sauce, all enveloped by a sweet semolina roll. Cooked to med-rare, it was juicy and succulent. An instant hit, very savoury and insanely addictive.
Eggplant Parm Platter with Baked Ziti
Layers of perfectly fried eggplant slices, interlacing mozzarella, tomato sauce and basil. It was just a eggplant lover's dream. The baked ziti was pretty good as well but the eggplant was truly the star of the dish.
