Michael Patrick specializes in pastas you've never heard of, and his take-home products are so exceptional, your favorite Italian restaurant may soon forget your face. Over more than six years, Patrick has scoured large and small towns in Italy, charming grandmothers, nuns, and chefs into sharing local recipes like turtej cu la cua—diamonds finished with a pattern resembling a wheat shaft, filled with fresh ricotta, Grana Padano, mascarpone, and a mix of greens. Familiar yet exotic, his fresh and dried pastas (which also include more recognizable noodles and tube shapes) began to draw long lines at farmers markets around town. In November 2012, Patrick opened a shop on Roswell Road in Buckhead, selling an ever-changing lineup of wheaty wonders with matching sauces (tomato, anchovy-laced salsa verde, lamb and tripe ragu). Look for holiday specials such as grand uovo: delicate four-inch ravioli, each filled with homemade ricotta and an egg yolk.
