I photograph Carlo Mirarchi grating zest over his nduja raviolo at Blanca in Brooklyn. The spicy, porky course is a study in luxury via perfection and portion control; you only get one bite, baby. If the fancy, French-y black truffle explosion at Chicago’s Alinea (also one bite) had a humble Italian analogue, it would be this. Those who wish to make reservations for the $180 tasting can do so on Tuesday, 2 January 2013, starting at 9:00am, by calling 646.703.2715.
Just a friendly BAD DEAL reminder that Blanca in Bushwick will be taking reservations for the month of January tomorrow morning. We reblog the above shot from our original photo tumblr, “Ryan Sutton is 3.0.” We hope you follow, despite the moderately obnoxious name!
