There’s an abundant amount of restaurants that can be found in NYC as they are pretty much on every single block. A lot of those are Italian restaurants which serve pretty much the same dishes. When that’s the case, restaurants need to figure out what makes them unique. La Pecora Bianca NoMad, which translates to “The White Sheep” in Italian, does a very good job of that.
They bring Italian cuisine its meaning by locally sourcing their ingredients and have a “farm-to-table” approach. They make an emphasis on letting each ingredient “shine” and the result is a pretty amazing end-product. La Pecora Bianca have two locations located on NoMad which we visited and one on Midtown near Central Park.
Our Experience at La Pecora Bianca NoMad
The restaurant, La Pecora Bianca NoMad is located just north of Madison Square Park and is an ideal spot for a place like this. The restaurant is nice and bright. It definitely gave us a nice welcome. The menu could potentially hurt your wallet, but we were lucky enough to go during Restaurant Week NYC. Because of this special week, the restaurant provided us with their main menu and a Restaurant Week menu. We obviously went with the latter since it provides a better deal and offers a two-course meal.
Restaurant week at La Pecora Bianca NoMad
Each course per person was about $26. For the first course we had one of their salads and a meatball appetizer. The vegetables on the salad was crisp and the colors were great, which is a sign of quality ingredients. The meatballs were tender, cooked perfectly and served in their red sauce. For our second course we had two pasta dishes. Their Tagliatelle was exceptional, but their Gramigna was, well to put it nicely, we would of preferred something else. However, one thing that did stand out was the quality of the ingredients. It was the flavor of the Gramigna that just didn’t really do it for us.
For dessert we had their tiramisu. The tiramisu was perfect except that it was pretty huge for no reason. You’re forced to buy a whole tiramisu cake for $25. You do have the option of taking it home, but what happens if you’re not going home right after?
Overall, it was a great experience. Yes, there were a couple of things that we wish were different, but those things are very subjective. Let us know in the comment section below what you thought of the restaurant! Also, don’t forget to check out different restaurants during Restaurant Week in NYC!
Being a photographer and creative in general, New York City, I think is the perfect place to be. I moved to NYC from Boston in 2013 and never looked back. Loving New York has given me the opportunity to do what I love and share those images with you all.
