One of my absolute favorite dishes is gnocchi. That's because I love pasta and I love potatoes. It's the perfect blend of the two. It will be available this Sunday night at LaBarca.

I have never dined at LaBarca or any of the other Bistro di Marino properties. But, l've heard that the gnocchi at LaBarca is outstanding.

I asked Marino about his version of gnocchi, who shared:

"We've been known for handmade Yaqui's for 20 years at the Bistro DiMarino Restaurants. LaBarca offers the same handmade famous gnocchi's,” said Marino.

LaBarca operates during the summer months as a full-service, upscale restaurant.

From October 1 through April 30, this venue becomes a wedding and special events centric facility.

If you are interested in this New Year’s Eve special event, the phone number to TEXT in order to purchase tickets is (856) 495-6803.

Bon appétit.
