This Tudor City hideaway offers Northern Italian seafood. Coastal staples include linguine in white clam sauce, calamari in a light tomato broth and broiled swordfish, while meat lovers can sink their teeth into veal scallopine and thin-cut sirloin. Statues and paintings around the slim, low-lit space highlight the space's namesake mythological creature (sporting an eagle's head and lion's body).
