Gnocchi Meets Afro Rhythms
Interior Designer Marion Philpotts-Miller and her family have been involved in dance for most of their lives, so it was natural on her last trip to New York City to get herself to the award-winning Broadway dance extravaganza, “Fela,” a celebration of the life and influence of Nigerian-born Fela Kuti, at the Eugene O’Neill Theater.
The New York theater district is not particularly known for its good food (too many out-of-towners in too much of a rush). So they were pleasantly surprised by Pietrasanta at 683 9th Ave. (between 47th and 48th) for a little pre-show pasta and pinot grigio. The gnocchi and salmon with black ink pasta got high marks.
"Just make sure you don’t eat too much," says Marion. "It’s a fabulous music night and you definitely don’t want to nod off."
