Laughing Cat built an avid clientele over 11 years so that by 2010 the place was turning away eager supplicants in droves. It recently marched its business right across the street, taking up residence in the twice-as-big space formerly home to Streetcar Charlie’s. It serves food that might appeal to the strict Italophile but that’s generous and accessible enough to satisfy the Italian-American as well. Pastas like the linguini malafemmina (noodles nearly obscured by fat shrimp, sea scallops, mussels and calamari in a lively tomato sauce) are the way to go. The decor is fairly casual, with the kind of no-frills chairs you see in hotel banquet rooms, but the Italian wine list is about as serious as it gets in these parts.
