I personally think one of the best ways to spend a balmy, breezy summer evening is dining al fresco in New York City. Cue: Barolo in Soho - an awesome eatery that has a charming garden area in the back and tables practically on the street in the front. There's nothing cooler than combing the nearby galleries and then slipping in to this Soho staple that offers a feast of fresh Italian standards. Barolo doesn’t skimp on portions, and its expansive wine list (along with a certain acclaimed pasta dish) will certainly keep my hubby coming back for more.
P.S. - Mike is ranking the penne vodka topped with salmon roe in photo #4 as one of his favorite pasta dishes of all time.
