Welcome to the Piedmont. We’ve Got Wine and Grains.
It’s Friday. Take a chance.
Turn to the nearest desirable person to you, and say the following words in a modest but confident tone, as
though the idea just came to you:
“Hey, come with me to San Carlo Osteria Piemonte tonight.”
That’s where you and that person will go to SoHo and eat Piedmontese Italian and converse in a way that
makes you the envy of all else in the restaurant, starting… now.
Two quick things: Piedmontese food is a little tough to come by in this fine city, but what you need to look
out for is a lot of meat antipasti, cream sauces and a sprinkling of Austrian and French influence. Oh,
and wine. They’re famous for wine. Second: expect to find more than a few Italian expats here, and for
that to make you feel good about your decision to come.
