Noodle Time

August 3, 2010

Noodle Pudding – yes, we know, it’s a strange name for an Italian restaurant. Get over it!

We started coming here when we were in our 2nd year of Parsons & living a few blocks away on Willow Street and continue to till this day. Some Noodle Numbers:

  • thousands: calories consumed (maybe hundreds of thousands?)
  • hundreds: friday night / post work week venting dinners
  • dozens: birthdays celebrated
  • one: gallery show (jasmin’s!)

Our love for noodle is for the simple reasons: incredible food (local ingredients when possible: i.e. Jersey tomatoes), inexpensive house wine, olive oil (with garlic, tomatoes and a touch of hot pepper), sweet & sincere staff that we now count as friends, and to seal the deal: kitchy Christmas lights that change seasonally.

Our usuals include:

  • Caesar hold the anchovies
  • Zucchini blossoms (a special when in season)
  • Fried calamari
  • Gnocchi in sage & butter (pillows of buttery heaven)
  • Hand rolled whole wheat penne with vodka sauce (not on the menu but ask anyway, make sure to say extra sauce!)
  • 1/2 roasted chicken with leeks & pancetta

Oh, and anything else on the menu. Especially their specials. They make a beautiful veggie plate for those not wanting to be fat.

Two things to note so you don’t get annoyed: it’s cash only, after a bottle of wine & 3 desserts you won’t want to walk to the ATM. On weekends it gets very crowded with little waiting room. Avoid going between 7 & 9, if you do, then be patient, it’s worth it we promise!
