$25 AND UNDER; A Surprise From Bologna Warms a Village Table
HERE’S a tip from the boys at the WXOU bar on Hudson Street, whispered over pints. Just walk into Da Andrea, that little joint across the street, and order a plate of tigelle ($8.50). Do it even before you’ve looked at the menu, before you’ve asked for a short glass of wine, before anything. Biscuits are involved. It takes a while to make.
The Pasta Is as Good as Ever at This 30-Year Old Italian Restaurant
henWhen Da Andrea (“from Andrea”) opened in the early ’90s on Hudson Street, it served Bolognese pastas in a narrow storefront, with low prices that attracted neighborhood devotees: The West Village was not quite so wealthy then, or the sort of restaurant destination it has become today. By 2002, Da Andrea had garnered enough attention that Sam Sifton gave it a rave review in the New York Times.
