NoMad is thrilled to announce the start of Winter Restaurant Week, which is sure to entice the palates of all our resident food lovers from January 21st through February 9th. If you haven’t yet explored the wealth of dining options in our neighborhood or want to take advantage of the fixed-price menus to revisit some old favorites, this is the perfect time to do so.
La Pecora Bianca at Kew’s own 1133 Broadway is an ideal starting place for those who still haven’t had the pleasure of sampling its fine Italian cuisine. Stop by for lunch and begin with your choice of smoked mozzarella and tomato arancini, some classic meatballs, or if you’re in the mood for lighter fare, refreshing salad options. Then take your pick of the restaurant’s most popular main dishes, including arugula pesto garganelli with roasted wild mushrooms and — for an elevated alternative to your greasy spoon cravings — a burger piled high with provolone, caramelized onions, and bacon.
For a wider selection of the restaurant’s usual menu, drop in for dinner, where you can also enjoy La Pecora’s roasted chicken and its light and flaky branzino served with a red pepper vinaigrette, spinach, and pickled raisins. Be sure to leave space for dessert, or you’ll risk missing out on a roasted apple-topped olive oil cake, or for the chocolate fiends among us, a milk chocolate budino complete with cocoa nibs, crispy honeycomb, and candied hazelnuts.
Once you check La Pecora Bianca off your list — and possibly make a few repeat visits — venture out into NoMad to experience the multitude of places participating in Restaurant Week.
