{swoon} Chicken Liver Rigatoni at Sotto

Rigatoni {chicken liver ragu, porcini, Parmigiano Reggiano}

I saw glimpses of fall this week. The combination of cooler temperatures (below 90 degrees!) and June gearing up for her first day of preschool (!), had me feeling like change was definitely in the air.

With the heat and hubbub of summer fading, all I’m desiring is the comfort of carbs, which brings me to Sotto’s rigatoni ($24).


The house-made noodles—tubular, ridged, and toothsome—were treated to a deep and earthy chicken liver ragu, punctuated with porcini and Parmigiano. With a mushroom-loather sitting across from me (ahem, The Astronomer), I had the entire plate of immense satisfaction to myself.

It’s good to know that even while Chef Steve Samson’s newest restaurant Rossoblu is thriving, things on the home front are as delicious as ever. Swoon…
