Pasta Bar at Ancora

Having slapped b&w photos by OG paparazzo Ron Galella on the walls of their oak-bar'd, previously-private-dining first-floor space, PB's planning to offer downtowners a melange of shareable stuzzichino and homemade pastas, from lightly sauteed bufala mozz mini-sammys and baked clams, to rigatoni bolognese, cavatelli primavera, and porcini & parm risotto. To wash it down, there's a selection of wines by the glass, classic cocktails, and homemade anisettes and grappas, sure to turn your flirty conversation into a bull market.
