Madonna’s Pasta of Choice at Marea

By Kate Krader Posted January 13, 2010

First Thomas Keller called out Marea’s fusilli with baby octopus, bone marrow and tomato: He told Eater that the pasta at NYC's Central Park South restaurant was his “single best dish of 2009.”   Then, the other night, there was Madonna at Marea. I’m not sure that she saw Keller's Eater comment, but she wanted a pasta. (Carbs?! There was an almost audible gasp in the dining room.) She surely would've loved the surf-and-turfy octopus and bone marrow, as Keller does, but Marea’s excellent chef Michael White whipped up something a little lighter for her: spinosini pasta [a very thin spaghetti] with langoustines, clams and sepia.
