Tableside Presentation | Pappardelle alla Emilio at La Catena Italian restaurant
871 Saw Mill River Rd, Ardsley
(914) 231-9260; lacatenaardsley.com 
Regardless of what side of the plate a diner falls on with tableside presentations (intrusive vs. enjoyable culinary theatrics), the pappardelle alla Emilio is a wonderfully rich dish to order. A 90- to 105-lb wheel of Parmigiano-Reggiano, its center slightly scooped out, is rolled out before the table. A splash of Cognac and pillar of flame later, the server mixes into the wheel homemade pappardelle and porcini/shiitake mushrooms, simultaneously scraping down gobs of the melt-y Parm-Regg. And as delicious as this dish is, make sure to leave room for a house-made dessert—La Catena’s Napoleon, for example, just missed making this Best of list by a pasta strand.
