Find house-made pastas and baked goods at this Italian comfort-food spot, from Aurora and Emporio owner Elena Fabiano. Housed in the longtime Zito's Bakery space, the restaurant is kitted out with vintage baking tools, whitewashed brick walls and original tile flooring. From the oven, Piedmont, Italy, native Ricardo Buitoni—an Aurora carryover—pulls Sardinian flatbreads, potted chicken foie with poached figs, and pizzetta topped with house-made pork sausage and dandelion. The pasta menu features pappardelle with veal-cheek ragù and bucatini with cured guanciale, and the all-Italian wine list spotlights small producers from Alto Adige.

A West Village gem! This cute restaurant serves delicious comfort food with a fancy twist. For brunch, try the eggs benedict with prosciutto and buratta, or the Baker's mac & cheese with a sweet and refreshing mimosa. For dinner, you can't go wrong with any of the options - the best plan is for everyone to order a few things and split the dishes. That's what I did with a group of friends and it was perfect. The restaurant also has a small outdoor courtyard area that can be fun as long as you're not surrounded by large, loud parties. This is easily one of my favorite restaurants in the city, one of the main reasons being how affordable it is for the portion size and quality of the food you're getting!
