Craving a warm bowl of pasta smothered in sauce? Stop into PASTAI, an Italian restaurant in Chelsea that offers everything from bucatini to tagliatelle. In the Italian tradition, order several antipasti for your first course. Fried olives stuffed with pecorino ($9), charred octopus with fennel-citrus salad ($18) and a thinly sliced cantaloupe and prosciutto salad ($15) might tempt you. Follow it up with ravioli stuffed with ricotta and mint in white wine sauce ($20), lemony tagliatelle with lobster, spinach, cherry tomatoes and crispy artichoke hearts ($27) or classic lasagna with short rib ragu, bechamel, ricotta and broccoli rabe ($22). Those looking for a lower carb option could try the seared salmon with quinoa and fava beans ($28) or the roasted half-chicken with mushroom marsala sauce ($20). Don’t miss the house-made desserts like ricotta doughnuts rolled in cinnamon sugar and filled with orange-scented pastry cream ($12) or flourless mocha cake drizzled with warm chocolate sauce ($11).
