Things We Love: Evo Bistro’s Lobster Ravioli

Jumbo-lump crabmeat, Serrano ham, and pan-fried leeks elevate sweet rounds of house-made pasta.

Many of the Mediterranean small plates at Evo Bistro are satisfying, but one of chef Driss Zahidi’s creations stands out above the rest: ravioli made fresh daily and stuffed with lobster, cream, salt, and pepper. The sweet disks of pasta are set in a lobster-and-crab reduction, then topped with jumbo-lump crabmeat, crispy bits of Serrano ham, and pan-fried leek matchsticks. The result is the restaurant’s most popular item—with customers and with us.
