Michelangelo Ristorante & Caffe

When it comes to gnocchi, Michelangelo Ristorante & Caffe owner Salvatore Cortara is picky. He's earned that right; each week, the Italian-born chef spends hours concocting several batches of gnocchi from scratch. He blends eggs, flour, and potatoes—baked, not boiled— with a hint of nutmeg. He fashions the dough into slender rolls, dusting them with flour before chopping them into bite-size morsels to be eaten with pesto or tomato sauce. Other forms of pasta, such as tortellini, ravioli, and pappardelle mingle with fresh clams or olives, and cuts of veal marinate in lemon and white wine. Chatter from the Cortara family drifts from the kitchen into the dining room, where tiffany lights hung from high ceilings illuminate ornate statues. The stone is carved into a floor-to-ceiling sculptural reproduction of the Creation of Adam, made famous by the Sistine Chapel ceiling and the floor of the guy who lives in the apartment above it.
