Heard about this place through one of J’s friends. Lot 1 Pasta Bar is sister restaurant to Bin 4 Burger Lounge (which is across the street).
We came for their half price pasta and wine (after 9:00pm, dine in only). Wine on tap is the only ones you get half off. Dropped in on a late Saturday evening after some swing dancing. We were worried about the time (we came in at 11:30pm) but they sat us without a problem.
The menu is short and sweet. Starters, salads and house made pasta. There’s half a dozen types of pastas to choose from. They have a monthly fresh sheet special menu.
Moroccan chicken rigatoni ($6.00)
Chicken, red pepper, artichokes, onion, cashews, coconut milk and cilantro. Not bad for a fusion dish. Liked the spiced. This was a small size which was a huge portion. I ate all of mine but the other two had leftovers for the next day.
Pesto chicken radiatori ($6.50)
Chicken, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, onions, basil pesto cream and parmesan. Pesto is always good in my books. Nice chunks of artichoke. The sauce was a bit liquified; would have preferred it to be thicker.
Perfect late night spot! We were very satisfied with our meal and drinks.
