Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Originally part of a Tokyo-based chain, Basta Pasta draws a predominantly Asian clientele to the pink-linened dining room, facing an open kitchen. Seared foie gras perched atop a brilliant saffron risotto cake mimics a luxe piece of sushi (it’s too small but dazzling). Mussels, clams, shrimp and squid are bathed in tomato sauce and piled over spaghetti; lobster salad with snap peas and a lemon aioli is charmingly springlike, and a nice preface to heftier entrées like grilled sea bass or braised short ribs. Service is gracious and personable, and thank-yous from the staff abound.
