Overall it was meal to forget, besides the company and the views. Pete's is an old school Italian family restaurant. Nothing fancy and all the usual suspects on the menu. Erica and I split the caprese salad to start, served with burrata instead of mozzarella. I thought the cheese was bland and the tomatoes equally boring.
Phil started with a salad that wasn't half bad, and Erica's pasta with tomato cream sauce was the best dish of the table. But my baked ravioli was not tasty and loaded with cheese that did not add flavor. Phil didn't love his seafood pasta either. I don't mean to sound like the food was inedible, just not any better than what we could make at home, and definitely not at New York prices (pasta dishes for $20??). I was happy to check out DUMBO and the beautiful skyline - all thanks to my local guides/friends. I look forward to my next New York trip and the options for amazing cuisine.
We all had a good time in the Big Apple
