Best Best Bread-Sopping Innovation

It’s one thing to unabashedly break pieces of bread and dunk them in the flavorful broth that usually surrounds steamed mussels or clams. But it’s another level of encouragement when they’re served in a bowl that tilts toward you. At Nicola’s , they don’t want you to miss any of the mussel broth that has roasted garlic, sausage, jalapenos, tomatoes, and white wine in it, so they serve them in a wide bowl set at an angle, and the mussels keep absorbing the flavors and warmth of the sauce. That little trick is a metaphor for their food, as if to say, “Let us do all we can to help you enjoy it . . . take a whiff of that fresh basil on the tagliatelle, the smoked bacon on the fettucine, the garlic on the cappellini, the sherry on the veal, the Barolo on the New York strip. Mangia, mangia, mangia !” 2 Tower Street, Westerly | 401.315.2922 |
