You might know the occasional series I write called One Great Dish? Here’s a link to one from SOMA 107 and another from Tarry Lodge. Well I know of a lot of “one great dishes,” so I invited four of my favorite neighborhood restaurants to come give samples during Bloomingdale’s Shopping Event at the end of October. I know, I know, October? Sorry. But I thought you’d still like to see the photos. These first four are by Journal News photographer Tania Savayan; the others are by yours truly.

One shopper came back to DiBari after tasting his sample and said “That’s the best ravioli I’ve ever had.”
