One of the best restaurants in the city, Rezdôra was bestowed with all manner of accolades with it first opened in 2019 and the awards keep coming. Though we implore you to reserve the $95 regional pasta tasting (with the $55 wine pairing, as long as you’re here!), lobster, mushroom, crab and sausage pasta dishes inspired by the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy are lovely à la carte as well.
New York City has an abundance of excellent Italian restaurants. Half the people in your group chat probably have favorites in your neighborhood and theirs, we are simply so spoiled for variety. Our red sauce staples, fancy white tablecloth throwbacks, buzzy newcomers, pizza parlors and slick high-concept ventures make it so that we can sample different Italian dishes every night for years and years and never run out of options. These are only the best to get you started, and keep you coming back.
