New York: A Voce

Located at 41 Madison Ave, A Voce is a trendy Italian mid-town restaurant. The decor is contemporary and the mid-day hustle was apparent.

I started with "Crostini alla Toscano," a mixture of chicken liver, foie gras, and moscato d'asti, served with garlic toast. The texture of the pate was lovely and the taste was evocative.

For my main entree, I had farfalle with lamb bolognese and sheep's milk ricotta. I was less impressed with this dish. The pasta had an odd texture. And the lamb was somewhat bland. If it had more cheese that may have helped as it was quite good. Overall, just not great, though. And I was disappointed since I had wanted to try this restaurant for a while.

I had hoped to try the cheese plate for dessert but wasn't afforded enough time. Perhaps I'll give the place one more shot in order to fit that in and try a different entree.
