What You'll Get
Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of contemporary upscale Italian fare at Ferre Ristorante e Bar on East 4th Street, adjacent to the bustling Sundance Square.
Ferre's menu puts a modern spin on hearty Tuscan flavors with clever reconstructions of Old World classics. Each edible can be ordered a la carte, or an appetizer can be allied with an entree and dessert for a $30 food triumvirate. Dive into the Mediterranean with an appetizer such as the lump crab cakes ($12) before calling on Ferre's house-made pastas ($16–$19) and brick-oven-baked pizzas ($14–$15) to sate boot-shaped stomachs. Chef specialties showcase meatier fare, such as romano-crusted chicken with fettuccini ($18), veal picatta scaloppini (thinly sliced veal in a lemon, parsley, and white-wine sauce, $22), and wild East Coast scallops with creamy spinach-parmesan risotto ($24).
If the monotony of indoor weather patterns is getting to you, step out of Ferre's spacious contemporary dining area onto the airy outdoor patio. Refuel with an Illy cappuccino ($5), and then make like a dessert-digging prairie dog and burrow through a chunk of dark-chocolate polenta cake ($7) to the espresso-soaked tiramisu ($7) on the other side.
