Weather.com lied this morning and said it wasn’t going to rain, so on my way to drop off a check on Great Jones Street, my ’58 Raleigh and I, of course, got rained on. After the check got dropped, I came out to find it pouring sheets. I was hungry. Thankfully, Il Buco Alimentari e Vineriawas right next door at 53 Great Jones between Bowery and Lafayette.
Their websitesays it best, ”Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria is a market salumeria, bakery and enoteca and restaurant, inspired by simple authentic food that’s made with an uncompromising ethic, and the joy of sharing it with friends.” I’m just going to call it effing amazing.
This is their breakfast sandwich with baked organic egg, rupert cheese, salame rosa, and focaccia fino. Ridiculous. Rounded out with a glass of freshly squeezed OJ…outlandish. Must go. Must try.
