Pasta Luego

At the Pasta Factory, you not only get your choice of pasta (vermicelli, spaghetti, linguine, fettuccine, fusilli, spinach spaghetti, spinach linguine, spinach fettuccine, or rigati); on most of the house specials you may also choose from a list of coatings, including tomato, meat, or Alfredo sauce, oil and garlic, or butter and cheese. Marinara, mushrooms in wine, sausage and tomato, white clam, red clam, pesto, beefaiola, and shrimp scampi sauces are available for a nominal additional charge.

These two are prime examples of the city's hybrid, cross-cultural restaurants, and raise the question of whether Miami is a tossed salad or a melting pot. But then again: Who really cares, as long as we can eat this interestingly, this cheaply...and this well?
