Spaghetti Incident Opens its Sidecar ‘Pasta Shop’ on Eldridge Street

Posted on: October 3rd, 2017 at 5:14 am by

The Spaghetti Incident on Eldridge Street just doubled in size. Its sidecar pasta shop debuted a couple weeks ago.

As previously reported, ownership recently annexed the space next door at 231 Eldridge Street (formerly a dry cleaner) with the goal of offering its menu food from a takeaway counter. Most notably, their ever-popular Spaghetti Cones for those on the go.

“The popularity of our Spaghetti Cones is growing every day, so we decided to have a space dedicated to them – and deliveries too,” a restaurant spokesperson told when we first broke the news.

The added space – dubbed the Spaghetti Incident Pasta Shop – also serves as a small retail outfit to sell its homemade sauce and other imported ingredients from Italy.

Spaghetti Incident joined the crowded scene in May 2015. The intimate, yet approachable restaurant (i.e. affordable) is a joint venture between Emanuele Attala, chef-owner of Malatesta and its sister Malaparte, and Ettore Pardossi and Giovanni Gentile.
