After feeding trendy Frenchies and always-ravenous movie stars for 10+ years in Cannes, Folie's has quietly opened its first US location in Midtown, where it's plating "international-inspired" pastas in a relaxing, rustic-meets-modern space complete w/ exposed cinder blocks, vintage world maps, and a giant clock face that looks like Doc Brown may climb onto it at any second.
Worldly pastas include Bali (soba w/ chicken, pineapple, red peppers, soy sauce), Brazil (fettuccine w/ chorizo, black beans, tomato sauce), and Quebec (spaghetti w/ salmon, zucchini, carrots, cream), or you can mix/match any noodles with house sauces like Napolitaine, pesto, carbonara, and diavolo, proving that the devil is indeed in the details... pertaining to your bowl of pasta.
Also feel free to grab "specialties" like lobster ravioli, and the signature Pasta Folie's w/ sun-dried tomato-covered sea scallops, as well as 10+ thin-crust pies topped w/ pancetta, tuna, ham, or curry chicken, which is exactly what Eddy crossed the road for, along with the pancetta, tuna, ham, and all other possible foods.
Since some awesome guy did a study that said wine was good for your heart, they've got about 20 bottles plus a few suds, because if Biff Tannen gets your car that he crashed towed all the way to your restaurant, you'd sure better have more than light beer.
