Triskaidekaphobia Lyrics (Barbuzzo Part 1.)

Marcie Turney and Valerie Safran love 13th Street. 13th Street should love them back. There are a few restaurateurs in Philadelphia, but few who really try to change a neighborhood. There has been much  talk about the food at Barubuzzo, but in November I am only interested in pasta. Today was a lunch visit for Paccheri. Paccheri is a large tube shaped pasta sometimes stuffed, but also can be served with a slow cooked ragu. Barbuzzo starts a pork ragu with bacon, pork shoulder and trotters. The ragu is slow simmered with tomatoes to present a very rustic comforting dish. this was my first plate of pasta at Barbuzzo and it gave me a clear picture of what they are trying to accomplish. If there was one minor complaint it was a little hearvy on the olive oil for my taste. Can't wait to get back for a few more.
