A Farewell to Pasta Man

Blogger Morland bids farewell to Pasta Man, the East Village's answer to the Soup Nazi:

Pasta Man was... decisive. Every time I ever bought anything from him we engaged in a little ritual. The first time I wasn't prepared.

PM: What kind of sauce you gonna put on that?
MO: Um... Marinara?
PM [head shaking slightly, eyes firing daggers of shame]: No.
MO: No?
PM: No. You drizzle some pesto and a little lemon juice - room temperature - on top. Just a little.
MO: Ok.
