West Village Restaurant: Cafe Condesa

For great food at even greater prices, try Café Condesa, the tiny West Village eatery on West 10th Street. The food is incredibly fresh and delicious in this snug place with only a few tables for the lucky few who snag them.

I started with perfectly fine gazpacho that was really more like tomato soup. Artichoke ravioli with puttanesca sauce (rich tomato sauce, black olives, capers and pecorino romano cheese)was a nice savory starter as well.

Then, the star of the evening- my fettuccine with goat cheese, portobello mushroom, green beans and red pepper coulis. Usually, this type of pasta dish is a huge, bland disappointment. Not this time. Creamy, yet with a piquant lemony flavor, the pasta was sensational. I gobbled down almost every bite. My hubby finished off what I couldn’t. His Striped Bass Veracruz slow cooked in tomato, poblano pepper and capers with plantains and rice was tender and moist, but my dish was the standout.
