Sfogliatella dessert from Donatella in Chelsea
The purpose of my lunch visit to Donatella, the newest restaurant from Donatella Arpaia, was to meet their young pasty chef, Andrea Jarosh and try some of her desserts. Unfortunately, I was immediately diverted from my goal after we started eating some savory dishes. Usually, when I know I’m going to be consuming 4+ desserts in a sitting, I try to limit the amount of savory dishes I order. However, on this day I was accompanied by the prolific NYC food critic,Yvo (The Feisty Foodie) and didn’t want to deprive her of sampling the full spectrum of savory dishes.
