La Masseria
A midtown restaurant is the last place you’d expect to conjure up thoughts of rural life, but La Masseria does just that. The white-tablecloth eatery—whose name means “medieval manor farm” in Italian—is as rustic inside as the name suggests: wooden ceiling beams, stone archways, antique farming tools. If you don’t pick up the countryside cues from the decor, the hearty dishes and friendly servers will bring you down to earth. Of note: creamy polenta with a four-cheese sauce; soft, black-truffle-topped gnocchi; and an antipasto of lean prosciutto and speck served with seasonal figs.

La masseria means the farm house in Italian, and you definitely get the feeling you are at someone’s home eating amazing home cooked Italian food. This stunning restaurant in the Theater District, has a décor worth seeing, with arched ceilings, lots of stonework, and beautiful photos and artwork. The crispy fried zucchini appetizer are light, flavorful and not too salty. A delicious pasta to try is the home made gnocchi with radicchio and taleggio cheese sauce. If you like fish, get the grilled salmon fillet with grilled zucchini and zesty mustard sauce. Don’t forget to save room for dessert. They have tiramisu, crème brule, and a flourless chocolate almond cake that are all truly decadent.
