Storico Fresco Pasta founder Mike Patrick is very serious about his pasta. So serious, in fact, that he will walk over to you and correct your posture if you are not holding one of his trays of homemade pasta correctly so it doesn't get bruised or torn. You can taste such devotion and love in every bite. Before he brought his talents to Atlanta, Patrick spent years in Italy traveling from town to town, collecting recipes, and studying the art of pastamaking. His focus on lesser-known pasta varieties is especially exciting. Stop by the retail shop in Buckhead - an expansion from Patrick's early Farm Mobile and farmers market days - and grab some casonsei, a half-moon pasta filled with roasted beets, smoked ricotta, and parmesan. Or maybe try one of the dried pastas such as the lumachelle ("little snails" in Italian) with hints of cinnamon and lemon zest. Patrick sources excellent, sometimes local, ingredients and each of his pastas is better for it.
