Is it the handmade pastas, or the foods they’re teamed with at Capers & Lemons? Hunter-style cavatelli gets the traditional prep of braised chicken, mushrooms, peppers and onions, parmigiano. Béchamel sauce adds richness to the tomato-y lasagna. And the gnocchi is beautifully combined with asparagus and shiitakes in white wine-lemon-truffle butter. Masterful.
