Morandi’s Chocolate Budino

3 years ago by

Morandi is one of my favorite restaurants in New York. It’s a great American Italian classic, absolutely delicious, and much too busy on the weekends, but great during the week, especially if you go at odd hours (one of the advantages of my job — the odd hours)(and also because that’s when you can see celebrities there, like Cameron Diaz last time, and I had the pleasure of seeing Richard Gere! Such a gorgeous man!!!) I love it and I’ve been going for years — so this week, we asked their chef Tony Liu to give us one of his recipes, something that would be simple to make at home: Chocolate Budino. So good!
