Arguably the hardest new table to book of 2012, Carlo Mirarchi’s fantastic hideaway in the backyard of the hipster pizzeria Roberta’s has more courses than diners: There are 12 seats and around 28 small dishes per meal. Flashes of genius include the Wagyu beef carpaccio glazed with duck egg yolk and the fresh ravioli stuffed with nduja, a spicy Calabrian pork spread. While chefs’ tables often invite quiet contemplation, Blanca, like its sister restaurant, Roberta’s, wants diners to have fun. Blanca even leaves guests in charge of choosing the night’s music with a DIY turntable, and records that range from Dolly Parton to Metallica.
