How to Spend the Perfect Sunday
This past Sunday evening, Tasting Table hosted an exclusive event at one of Downtown's hottest dining destinations, Café Altro Paradiso. To kick things off, guests took a new BMW for a spin on the open streets of western Soho.

Then, chef Ignacio Mattos got things going in the kitchen, churning out some of our favorite apps, like perfectly crisp arancini, rich anchovy crostini, baccala fritto, date and pancetta involtini and oysters with a refreshing tomato vinaigrette.
Mattos, who also owns industry favorite Estela, even managed to sneak into the airy and elegant dining room to show off his pasta-making skills, teaching guests how to make orecchiette (Italian for "little ears"). Nearby, his partner Thomas Carter demonstrated his prowess making the Negroni Sbagliato, his version of the classic cocktail, which swaps in bubbly for gin. Breadsticks and an elaborate antipasti spread helped fortify guests as the night wore on.
To wrap things up, the evening ended on a sweet note with slices of chocolate and walnut cake—the perfect end to the perfect evening.
