Hello, pasta! But, really. Hello Pasta. After my morning of yoga, meetings, and walking about in tall boots, I was STARVING by the time the lunch hour rang. Lucky for me, I got to say “hello” to a terrific New York gem of a chain.
Inspiration: HELLO PASTA
This chain is revolutionizing the way we order pasta, and considerate of the gluten-free crowd walking these bustling streets. Their three-step process includes:
2. Pick a sauce (1/3 of the options are gluten-free, 1/3 are dairy-free)
3. Cheese and Toppings (vegan, dairy, and gluten-free options)
I had a conversation with the owner, and he said that the gluten-free option has been integral to the success of this new chain of pasta place. One complaint he did have, as a European, a foodie and, obviously, a lover of pasta, is that it is really hard to get it “al dente”. He found that the “Heartland” brand had been the least mushy thus far, and I recommended he try Thinkyada. We’ll see what he “thinkyada-ed” of that, soon!
