What: Pea-Filled Mezzelune
Where: A Voce
The Scoop: Rhubarb, asparagus, ramps and peas are the four horsemen of the winter apocalypse (also known as spring’s awakening). If there were enough time and space, I’d dedicate a column to each, but this week’s spotlight falls on sweet, poppy, perky peas in a delicate heap of mezzelune pasta. Few places can craft a filled pasta quite like A Voce, and these translucent wisps practically burst with the brightness of spring’s mini green marbles. They’ll be gone in weeks, but in the meantime, they’ll make every other season pea-green with envy.
In Short: Mind these peas and Q’s.

With over 3,000 restaurants in NYC and only three meals a day, how do you choose your food wisely? We’ve foraged through the five boroughs tasting everything we can get our mouths on, and these are The Ten favorites (for right now).
Fifteen years ago, you couldn’t find a lobster roll anywhere in this city, and its quick climb (or crawl?) into NYC restaurants everywhere exemplifies the greatness of this New England coastal treat. Beach season isn’t quite upon us yet, but once you get one of these lobster rolls in hand, it will feel just a tiny bit closer. Keep reading…
