100 Very Best Restaurants: #80 – Obelisk

Bigoli Pasta with Duck Ragout


This intimate room offers one of the region’s best prix fixe deals. The five-course meal ($81 or $91, depending on the night) starts with antipasti—maybe briny bottarga, or burrata with Ligurian olive oil. Then it’s on to such pastas as suckling-pig-stuffed agnolotti and maybe a rosy Waygu steak. The menu changes, but if you’re lucky, the pear crostada will be on offer for dessert. Very expensive.
