Restaurant Review: Fritto Misto

Anuj had mentioned Fritto Misto some time ago in all sorts of praises and such. Being someone who loves hype almost as much as food, I felt obliged to go. The restaurant's building was fairly low-key. The inside, however, was bustling. Several guests were in line to be seated and the wait staff was in constant motion through the maze of little tables. The restaurant wasn't big but every space was used to its maximum potential.

From just the smell alone, I knew the food was going to be some kind of good:


From top to bottom rows, left to right: lobster ravioli, pesto chicken ravioli, black linguine and salmon, fritto misto, and spicy chicken ravioli.
We started with the fritto misto, was was essentially a melange of vegetables and seafood dipped in batter and fried to a state of indescribable deliciousness (okay I may be exaggerating but fried goods overtake my senses like no other!). Yet, the items were not overcooked and the dipping sauces were excellent accompaniments. I tried a small piece of the lobster ravioli and it tasted like the lobster was fresh out of the ocean (I'm sorry if you love animals and this imagery just makes you sad and hateful towards us who eat all of God's creatures). The other two chicken raviolis were hearty and satisfying as well. Now I will discuss the black linguine. Anuj and I decided to share this dish, which was a special that night, because neither of us could resist the prospect of salmon and fresh tomato dressing. Did I mention that the noodles were black? Yes, I was most intrigued! (Wow, I really need to curb the enthusiasm). Honestly, the noodles tasted no different than any other pasta but their color certainly lended a kind of unexpected contrast to the presentation. To unravel the mystery (if this is one for you), the noodles were colored with squid ink. Ingenious, I say. Overall, the black linguine was wonderful and the fresh basil/tomato combination continues to blow my mind.

Fritto Misto, we shall meet again.

Price: $13 (average price for plate of pasta)

Rating: 9.5/10 (delicious+)
