The original Rao’s has been operating in New York City for more than 115 years, and is known as one of the toughest reservations in the Big Apple. The Caesars Palace spinoff is a lot easier to access, although you’ll still need to book in advance. And the food is well worth the wait: classic Italian recipes that have been fine-tuned by the same family for more than a century. One of the house specialties is spaghetti alla bolognese, but everything on the menu is sure to please.
