Sola, who also owns the upscale eatery Mamo across the street, is bringing the front and back of house together here.
A trend made popular by Rene Redzepi at Noma, chefs at Sola not only cook but also serve the food to diners, explaining and completing dishes at the table.
The design of Sola Pasta Bar is centered on a large open kitchen island right in the middle of the space. Diners will have three options: sitting around the island while watching Chef Sola prepare their meal, at a large concrete design common-table, or at more traditional seats.
The menu is, of course, all about pasta. There are eight pastas, mostly familiar ones like penne all’arrabbiata, linguine with clams, fettuccine Bolognese and tagliatelle with porcini. Gluten-free options are also available.
