20 Jan The EATORIALIST: TOASTED AT GOTTINO
You might want to ask the chef/owner of Gottino one simple question about one very simple dish, “Hey Jody, what about that toast?”
For a whopping $7 two small slices with butter and marmalade me thinks she’s got some serious whole grain issues. My breakfast companion, a then an out-of-work executive who is now back at the helm of one of Conde Nast’s top publications, was visibly irritated by the high priced toast. An extra dollar brings you up a notch to a panini of various combinations – well worth the $8 investment. But with that toast, it just ain’t right.
Jody may be having issues with one of her investors but there’s no reason to go sky high on the bread to make bread. Gottino, with its all day menu of coffees, Italian small plates, and wines is a jewel among local fare. With its charmed interiors and Village locale its a neighborhood favorite and worthy destination though, for me breakfast is now toast at Gottino. Gottino, 52 Greenwich Avenue
