Lunch at Carbone

November 24, 2013

I love it when restaurants start to offer a lunch service, especially when it’s one like Carbone with a nearly impossible to obtain a dinner reservation.

Lunch here starts like dinner with their fabulously buttery and delicious garlic bread and some slices of prosciutto.

My lunch companion and I split a generous portion of Carbone’s spicy rigatoni vodka.  The al dente pastas were coated with their addicting creamy sauce with a punch.  The half portion was just the right amount for a first course.

In addition to some of the classics from the dinner menu, Carbone offers a few lunch specials including a variation on a club sandwich.  Filled with beef carpaccio, the sandwich was lightly dressed with tomato slices and watercress.  The triple decker was held together with a metal rod along with some crunchy pickled vegetables.  To make it a more substantial dish, the sandwich was complete with a small ceramic dish of pan roasted fingerling potatoes.

Because we kept lunch light, it felt only right to round out the meal with a slice of their decadent carrot cake along with a macchiato.  Plus it was just too hard to resist when they roll out the dessert cart right up to our table.
