New Yorkers! Have dinner at Organika. This cozy West Village eatery features authentic dishes from southern Italy plus it’s a great place to practice your Italian. I ate the Rigatoni Con Polpette dish last time. And next visit, I absolutely must try one of my favorite meals, Spaghetti Di Farro Alla Carbonara. When I was nineteen, Hervé, my host during my first stay in France, taught me how to make this hearty Italian staple. Merci Hervé!
