Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
As is the case at too many of New York’s see-and-be-seen hotspots, the food at this West Village mainstay takes a back seat to the scene. The fashion and media elite regularly feast on a lineup of pastas and Tuscan staples like an oddly flavorless osso buco, all listed on a sanctimonious (“no cheese served on seafood at any time”) menu—groundbreaking when the restaurant opened in a sea of red sauce joints in 1975, but not enough to lure latterday diners away from nearby Morandi. One redeeming dish: The lobster gnocchi features sweet, plump shellfish dispersed among exquisitely doughy dumplings. If weather permits, queue up for a table in the sprawling sidewalk café, still presided over by the restaurant’s ebullient owner, Silvano Marchetto.
