20Feb2012 Lupa's Spaghetti Alla Carbonara joins ESCA's Linguine with Clams on's list of "12 Epic New York City Pastas to Eat Before You Die"
"There are only few steps involved in cooking this dish, but a lot of restaurants get it all wrong — too often, you find pieces of scrambled eggs mixed in the pasta, or a pool of soupy sauce at the bottom. Lupa gets it just right, and it's a glorious thing: strands of firm pasta that are evenly coated with creamy sauce and pungent black pepper, with a few slivers of crispy guanciale thrown into the mix. You won't find a better version of this dish anywhere in New York."
