What to Eat at All’onda, Michael White Alumnus Chris Jaeckle’s Italian-Meets-Japanese Restaurant

By
Spaghetti with Manila clams, ramazotti, and Madras curry.

It was first reported in September of 2012 that Chris Cannon, Michael White's former business partner, and chef Chris Jaeckle (Ai Fiori, Morimoto) would open a seafood-focused restaurant in Union Square. After appearing in New York's spring and fall restaurant previews, All'onda is officially opening tonight. The restaurant's name refers to a "soupy" style of risotto, but there's actually only one risotto dish (with sepia, radicchio, and bottarga) on the menu. Other dishes include polenta with a miso-cured egg yolk and wild mushrooms, bucatini with smoked uni and spicy bread crumbs, and veal-glazed skate with beets and semolina dumplings. Take a look at a few of the dishes, the space, and the menu, straight ahead.
