72. Home Made Pasta at Joey's Italian Cafe in Wynwood
The pasta at Joey's is fuckin' awesome, and the prices are too, but we'll put it to you how Lee Klein did in his review of the joint. "Chef Ivo Mazzon is from Veneto, and his food pledges that region's allegiance to fresh ingredients simply prepared. Take the spaghetti pomodoro: staunch strands of semolina with a sauté of ripe red tomatoes, fresh basil, and a hint of garlic and olive oil. Take, too, the same homemade spaghetti dappled with a dozen littlenecks and a clam sauce buoyed by white wine, garlic, and parsley. Keep taking and taking, because pastas are consistently delicious and considerately priced."
