Room 39, a long-standing culinary pillar of West 39th St., is known for their locally-sourced, seasonal cuisine, and the goat cheese gnocchi is one of the stars of the show. Similar to ricotta gnocchi, these poignant dumplings are made with Hemme Brothers goat cheese, which is incorporated into the dough.

The lunch and dinner menu options differ slightly, but the same, pillowy goat cheese pasta is always on full display. The lunch menu’s version is served in a white cream sauce with swiss chard, bacon, mushrooms and pecorino romano.

Meanwhile, the dinner menu gnocchi is a vegetarian option served in a vibrant green and herby white wine cream sauce, oyster mushrooms, nettles, shallots and pecorino romano.

Pair with a crisp, chilled glass of Pinot Gris and stick around for a warm ambience.
