For the next three weeks, I'm going to be spending a fair amount of time at Madison Square Eats manning the Robicelli's stand. So of course I'll be getting a lot of meals there as well! I've already tried a few things that really stand out, and should definitely be tried before it's all over on October 21st.
The first thing I tried this season was "The Rapture" at Roberta's. At $11, it was hard for me to justify this in my mind, but one bite and I was convinced this was worth it! It was topped with caramelized onions and kale in addition to the mozzarella. Roberta's, always for the win.
Another big hit with me was the Moroccan Meatball Sandwich from Almond. Lamb meatballs are perfectly made, they're not over-spiced or dry, smothered with a sweet red sauce, and then everything's topped with a generous amount of cheese. The green sauce added a nice spicy kick to everything. Since it was were all of the spice was coming from, you didn't have to worry about your mouth being on fire.
And for dessert, you should check out Macaron Parlour's HOMEMADE peach poptarts. Not too sweet, a delicious peach filling, and flaky crust. Two seconds in the toaster, and it's everything you wish we'd had when we were kids.
