Baci and Abbracci, Williamsburg, Brooklyn
Stop #5: Baci and Abbracci. I once saw a special on TV featuring beet infused pasta at Baci and Abbracci and was immediately drawn to it. This was a beet and goat cheese gnocchi with cheese sauce and arugula. The gnocchi is so soft and creamy it just melts in your mouth. If you're someone who's intimidated by the unfamiliar flavors of beets and goat cheese, rest assured it's so mild you can't tell. This was hands down the best gnocchi I have ever had, I would eat one and just sit back to savor it...whilst sitting in the outdoor garden...not a bad way to spend an afternoon my friends.
