The 101 Most Iconic Restaurant Dishes in America

The 101 Most Iconic Restaurant Dishes in America

Chef Tony Mantuano’s refined and modern Spiaggia is the gold standard for Italian fine dining in Chicago, and it’s constantly breaking new ground and reinventing itself, most notably with a 2014 renovation and menu revamp. There’s one dish, however, that can never be removed from the menu or it might incite riots (or at least polite disapproval): the gnocchi. Super-tender hand-rolled gnocchi are blanched and tossed in a sauce made with heavy cream, milk, ricotta and a handful of Parmigiano-Reggiano and a drizzle of truffle oil (the real stuff, infused with preserved Italian truffles). It’s plated after the sauce reduces slightly, and it’s topped with a spoonful of rich jus and a couple of those preserved sliced truffles.
