New on the Menu: Traditional pasta dishes and pastrami pierogi

Plus dry-aged tilefish and a cocktail inspired by Pisces

NOM doesn’t normally feature quite traditional dishes, because they can easily be found on the Internet, but “authenticity,” whatever that means, is currently in vogue, so we’re making a couple of exceptions this week to highlight some extremely traditional pasta dishes.

One is Pappardelle alla Bolognese, the great grandmother of so many pasta-and-meat-sauce dishes, named for the city of Bologna, Italy, where it originated. It’s served at John Tesar’s new Knife Italian in Dallas. The other is Maccheroni all Norma, a Sicilian dish named for the opera Norma that’s being served at the new Piccola Cucina Casa in Brooklyn.

Also in Brooklyn, Veselka, a culinary institution in Manhattan’s East Village, has opened a new location in the neighborhood of Williamsburg and is stuffing its pierogi with pastrami from Katz’s Deli.

And in Manhattan, there’s a new bar called Little Dipper, in Midtown, that bases its cocktails on astrology, including one called Magic that’s inspired by Pisces.

And at Ruse in St. Michaels, Md., chef Michael Correll is dry-aging tilefish and serving it with a Thai green papaya salad.
