Matt Kelly runs the block with Mothers & Sons, Lucky's Delicatessen and Mateo Bar de Tapas
"Satisfy your carb fix at Matt Kelly's new Mothers & Sons. While choosing a pasta dish is a daunting task, it's best to start by crushing a couple of their epic bruschetta options with a glass of Lambrusco. After hearing the long list of daily pasta specials (made in-house), you'll be back at square one. You can't go wrong with tagliatelle al ragu and squid ink tonnarelli. Kelly basically runs this block, so it's wise to add Lucky's Delicatessen for lunch to your itinerary. Because the house-made peanut butter with seasonal jam sandwich is so nostalgic, in a gourmet kind of way. Mateo Bar de Tapas is a happening place for lunch and dinner with its Spanish deviled eggs, chicharrones, and pan con tomate with manchego."
