Feature pasta: Tomato & 'Nduja sausage - 2

J's comment > not bad; pasta cooked well, on the al dente side; would have liked more sauce, but fine as it was; definitely spicy courtesy of the 'Nduja sausage (FYI, the sausage actually melts into the pasta so you can't see it, but the flavor is there)

Potted chicken livers with a Marsala gelatina - 2

J's comment > not bad; creamy chicken liver spread, your usual awesomeness but nothing particularly different from other yummy chicken liver spreads around town

Burrata and ‘Nduja sausage - 2

J's comment > not bad; absolutely delish burrata, very creamy and soft, not sour in the least like Gordon Ramsay's; 'nduja spicy flavor too strong as a pairing though, would have liked to taste more of the burrata on its own (which I just ate straight up) 

Stracciatella soup with egg, bread crumbs, Parmigiano-Reggiano, chicken broth and nutmeg - 2

J's comment > soup slightly salty but the mixed texture of the egg and bread crumbs was interesting

Boulevardier - 2

J's comment > very smooth, not too bitter, easy to drink

Old Pal - 2

J's comment > same comment as above


Notturno on Urbanspoon

Extra Comment
The bar actually doubles as the kitchen, as most of the items are prepped ahead of time and are quickly put together before serving.
