Eating in a bustling Italian restaurant has its drawbacks, like the loudness of the fiery patrons, or, according to Goodfellas, actual fires. Eat your hearty pasta outdoors instead, with Basil Thyme.
DC's first "from scratch" Italian truck, Thyme's serving fresh pastas and sandwiches from a fittingly scratched-up silver mobile kitchen run by a previous IT guy/ programmer who now starts prepping noodles every morning at 5a, meaning he presumably continues to be very familiar with JAVA. Design-your-own pastas come with your choice of noodle (spaghetti, fettuccine, ravioli with handmade ricotta, or bowtie) made with their "secret ratio" of Semolina, AP flour, eggs, and water, and are then topped off with their herb sauces like a standard marinara, meat, pesto, or vodka, all made from "time-tested family recipes" -- though how hard is it to establish "1) Add penis to vagina, 2) Wait nine months"? If you're not in the mood for a summertime steaming bowl of pasta,
you might be a redneck they've got Boot-worthy sandwiches like a pesto/ Roma tomato/ fresh mozz Caprese, and a meaty prosciutto/ hard salami/ pepperoni/ red pepper combo called the "Italian Mix", which's also what Pauly D puts on his iPod during chest & bi's day... aka every day.
They'll be rotating in new pastas constantly (this week's a Basil Fettuccine), and are also hawking desserts like tiramisu and chocolate-dipped cannolis, all of which should ensure that just like the patrons of a mob-connected restaurant, your diet gets shot to hell.
