So far, Albert Bilotti’s reputation precedes him, with notable local joints like Kanome and NYPD Pizza.
One takeaway observation from dinner at his newest spot, Lucia?
Soft ice cream + hard biscochito = great taste, yet unwieldy and hard to eat, messy, collapses….
Per the Kitchen Witch, “It is a fine art to create a sandwich that doesn’t collapse when you take the first bite, due to overly-soft ice cream or overly-hard cookie.” And that means Lucia should be making the sandwiches way ahead of time and letting the biscochito get a little soft while the ice cream itself firms up to match.
But that might be a rather niggling point, eh?
