Momofuku Nishi Restaurant Review

: Nishi is chef David Chang’s eatery in Chelsea offering Italian-inspired fare. Excellent ceci e pepe, a riff on the classic Roman cheese and pasta dish, substitutes chickpea paste for cheese, the al dente bucatini noodles littered with relatively large balls of peppercorn. The menu also includes tagliatelle with pork skin and garlic chive, and dry-aged rib-eye with acorn squash. For dessert, the pistachio Bundt cake should satisfy a sweet tooth. The wine list is well curated and includes some bottles from unusual locations such as Idaho.
