Around the Columbia University Medical Center you’ll find a lot of new trendy stylish restaurants. Kuhinya is a relatively new (1.5 years) Italian Pasta and grill restaurant just across the street from the medical center. Kuhinya is a tight space with a few tables and 3 – 4 bar stools with a front row seat to the firing grills. It seemed like most of the patrons of Kuhinya are students and staff from the hospital. At Kuhinya, all the pasta dishes are made to order and you certainly have a large variety of pastas and sauces to choose from.

Penne (organic and whole wheat)
Some of the featured sauces at Kuhinya include Tomato Basil, Pesto String Beans, Kuhinya Meat Sauce, Puttanesca, Salmon and Vodka, Grilled Chicken and Cream, and Spicy Calamari Sauce.
We ordered a plate of the Pappardelle with Kuhinya Meat Sauce $9.25:
and a plate of Penne with Salmon and Vodka Sauce $12.75:
The plates were not entirely enormous but quite filling. (You can also order a variety of sides with your dish) The Pappardelle was fresh and cooked al dente with a nice rich tomato meat sauce. The sauce was a little on the salty side for my taste but was a great meal. The Penne with Salmon and vodka sauce was a definitely a hit. The whole wheat penne was delicious and also cooked al dente. The Salmon and vodka sauce was a cream base and included ample small chunks of delicious fresh grilled salmon.
