My new favorite restaurant and it's in Williamsburg from Missy Robbins (head chef and owner) who won the 2017 James Beard for best chef in NYC.  I wanted to eat absolutely everything on the menu but my favorites (in order) were the agnolotti, malfadini, ramp focaccia (seasonal), and grilled blowfish tails.  We also got the cacio e pepe balls (savory fried cheese doughnut goodness), and the gnocchi (which was good but not great).  I would focus on the pastas and upper half of the menu (ask if the focaccia is available because it's not on the menu).  We got the "famous" pastas but I would go back in a heart beat to try everything else on the menu.  Missy Robbins is just opened a new restaurant soon in West Williamsburg called Misi which is strictly pastas.
