Although Italians originally invented pasta as a fastener to keep Sicily from floating away, they abandoned it for less-delicious moorings after locals on both sides kept snacking their way toward separation. Tether your taste buds to today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Italian and American cuisine and wine at Good to Go in the Bronx.
The cuisine curators at Good to Go present a menu of hearty Italian and American cuisine amid a romantic, warmly lit space with walls bedecked by soft pink and yellow hues. Loosen up clenched craws for an appetizer of ricotta-and-mozzarella-stuffed fried rigatoni ($8.50) while lubricating the gullet with a Black Oak chardonnay ($7.95). The chicken ’n’ spinach flatbread ($9.95) demonstrates that cuisine can be enjoyed in three or two dimensions, and the spaghetti bolognese stitches together a quilt of cream and meat sauce with tasty noodles ($12.95).
Vegetarians can nosh on the eggplant parmigiana, packed tightly with marinara sauce and fresh mozzarella ($12.50), ravenous meat cravers can carve into rosemary-rubbed lamb chops ($21.95), which, like spectators at a youth soccer game, can be paired with an Apollo Creek pinot grigio ($5.95). During warmer months, outdoor seating allows guests to quench their thirst for sunshine and whimsical libations, with a cocktail menu that includes the pomegranate martini ($8) and the Grey Goose–based candy apple.
- The food is so good, it's reasonably priced (for most things), and they give you large portions. It's also been renovated recently so it's beautiful inside, with a fully stocked bar. – Yuri K., Yelp, 8/18/10
