The owners of Italian vino spot Felice Wine Bar open a full-service sister restaurant 19 blocks north. Settle into one of the wood-and-leather banquettes for a hearty plate, like chicken milanese with arugula and cherry tomatoes, or pappardelle with sweet sausage, fresh porcini mushrooms, endive and truffle oil. To drink, choose from a 100-bottle wine list, which focuses on Italian selections. The 65-seat space features glass-wine-jug chandeliers, vintage 1960s photographs and a white marble bar.
