Barbuzzo Praised

Brian Freedman calls Barbuzzo the best restaurant in the Safran & Turney 13th Street empire.

Fideua, essentially a less familiar take on paella with short vermicelli instead of rice, can now take its place next to Adsum’s foie gras poutine as the best high-brow drunk food in town. It’s stuffed with tender calamari bands, sea-tasting shrimp, mussels musky with saffron, and smoky, paprika-scented chorico. Those noodles, heady with the combined scents of the seafood peeking up throughout, as well as the intensely flavored broth in which they’re cooked, is impossible to stop forking.
