After opening Indonesian spot Satay Junction earlier this year, the folks behind Brick Lane Curry House are today bringing an Italian spot to midtown. Radicchio Pasta and Risotto Co. is the second location of a restaurant they first opened in Ridgewood, New Jersey. At just eighteen seats, this one is smaller and more casual, without the white tablecloths. If you work in the area, you’ll probably want to go between noon and 4 p.m., when some of chef Daniel Montoya’s handmade pasta dishes are $10 and under (menu below, and see the dishes in our slideshow). But if you feel like sitting and staying a while, this location, like the Jersey one, is BYOB, and it’s open till 11 p.m. on weekdays and 1 a.m. on weekends.
