Today was such a dreary day in New York City. Hot, humid and rainy. However, I had a lovely lunch with a dear friend at the recently opened Coco Pazzo in Soho which was really, really delicious.
The room is really comfortable, a bit modern with some rustic touches. The menu has Schiacciate, which are grilled sandwiches on focaccia, Pan Rustico, which are toasted sandwiches, salads, soups, pastas and main courses – all at super reasonable prices. I thought that the portions would be much smaller based on the price but they were all quite good.
I started with the Ribollita Toscana and then had the Pollo alla Milanese! The Ribollita was wonderful. Thick, full of greens and beans and great flavor. The Pollo alla Milanese was fried perfectly with beautiful arugula and cherry tomatoes!
I had Affogato Vanilla for dessert which was served in a nicely chilled ceramic cup! A great end to a great lunch!
