100 Favorite Dishes: No. 84, Bar La Grassa's gnocchi with cauliflower and orange

By now, most of us know Bar La Grassa boasts a mean Italian menu, paired with a top-notch wine list and served in a cozy, elegant atmosphere.

This spot has been a favorite since it opened in 2009 and while most -- if not all -- dishes come highly recommended, the gnocchi with cauliflower and orange is among their most prized entrees.

The pillowy potato dumplings are just the right weight, density, and size. The cauliflower is abundant, but thinly sliced. The sauce, a buttery-orange glaze sprinkled with chives, is subtle, and doesn't overwhelm the gnocchi.

Bar La Grassa's gnocchi with cauliflower and orange is a seemingly simple dish, but all the understated elements blended together make this meal what it is. It's that subtle effort, far from a boastful production, that lands this one in our top 100 favorite dishes.
