Pencil in Jan. 14 now for the opening date of Amìs, Marc Vetri's Roman trattoria at 13th and Waverly Streets, which I've been telling you about since last summer.
Here's a rundown from last week, as construction wound down.
Vetri has generously sprung the opening menu on me, so here it is. (Chef Brad Spence, from Vetri, will be cooking.)
Per-person tabs are destined in the $40s.
Note the earthiness of it all: housemade salumi; crispy sweetbreads with fennel marmalade; fried lambs tongue; potato frittata; tonnarelli “cacio e pepe” with pecorino and black pepper; bucatini alla “gricia” with pork belly, chili flake and pecorino; gnocchi alla romana with oxtail ragu; guinea hen leg saltimbocca with prosciutto and sage; roast lamb shoulder and potato; turkey cutlet alla Milanese; grilled tuna steak; and desserts including warm Belgian-style waffles with Nutella and semifreddo.
So much for your New Year's resolution to skip carbs.
