Le Zoo Executive Chef Julian Baker.

There are few dishes that comfort the soul quite like a creamy, swirling mound of pasta. Add to that truffle, parmesan and a devil may care portion of butter and we’re talking noodle nirvana. At Le Zoo, Executive Chef Julian Baker has made his tagliolini a must-have (on a menu already heavy with high-demand dishes).

“My affection for pasta came while working in Italy,” says Baker. “I fell in love with the simplicity of creating food using just a few quality ingredients, the result is simple yet rich in flavor. This tagliolini dish equals pure satisfaction: Nothing satisfies me more than some fresh homemade pasta topped with fresh truffle. It’s comfort food at its finest and a win, win combination. This dish is definitely in my top-five Le Zoo favorites.”

Le Zoo’s tagliolini is one of the most popular menu items—and among Chef Julian Baker’s “top-five.”
