A Backroom Pasta Emporium Inside Range

None 3 Photos Aggio
Couple things you shouldn’t forget about today: it’s the day when you can finally get plates of pasta from a celebrity chef.

And it’s Friday, which is always a nice night to go out for pasta.

Oh, and... nope, that’s about all the reminders we need to give you regarding today.

So anyway, about that pasta, you’ll find it at Aggio, Bryan Voltaggio’s new Italian concept within Range, opening tonight.

Yeah, it’s inside Range, but it’s really an entirely different restaurant—separate kitchen, staff, wine list, music (yes, you’ll hear Sinatra). You’ll still check in out front, but they’ll escort you back to this windowless, white-tableclothed, 80-seat dining room.

Once you sit down, there will be plenty to distract you. Like cocktails with housemade anise-and-beet liqueur. After that, you can get everything from lentils with charred octopus to aged steak Florentine with sea urchin to radiatore with vodka sauce. Or, you know, meatballs.

But being that you’re getting all valentine-y this weekend, you might want to splurge for the six-course tasting menu. Think carbonara with braised pork jowl, and veal shank with bone-marrow custard.

And maybe a non-marrow custard for dessert.
