Village Voice's Description
Housed in a glassy cathedral of a space on a shiny stretch of the Bowery, L'Apicio can feel like that one restaurant in every American town where the people with money come to dine. Still, this latest addition from Gabe Thompson and Joe Campanale's Italian-inflected mini-empire tastes better than it looks. Find refined, esoteric pastas and ethereally creamy polenta, the likes of which are so expertly crafted that the restaurant's other flaws can be mostly forgiven. Though many dishes are too heavily salted, the ones that work are masterful Italian gems with a lot of soul, hiding in this charmless, incredibly noisy dining room. --Tejal Rao
Tips from foursquare
From the chef behind Dell'Anima, you're sure to have a great meal here - whether it's the lamb shank hash for brunch, or any of the fresh pastas for dinner. Try to snag an outside table if possible!
Plan extra time in your schedule because they unapologetically sat us over 30 minutes after our reservation time.
Order the apple cinnamon oatmeal pancakes for brunch and you'll dream about them later.
Chef Gabe Thompson, of L'Artusi, Dell'Anima, and Anfora. Order any of the polenta dishes, and make sure to try one or two of the pastas. There is a big bar to accommodate you and a few of your friends
