Falai (CLOSED)

Restaurants, Italian Lower East Side

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Though it’s ostensibly Italian, the sprightly flavors at Falai—a sleek, modern spot—transcend classification. Dishes that wowed included downy cod, complemented by an unexpected bitter-almond-and-chocolate-mint sauce. Thyme pappardelle was heavenly—ribbons of pasta coated in enough creamy ricotta and mashed fig to make each bite a dessertlike pleasure. Speaking of the final course, owner Iacopo Falai’s formal training as a pastry chef (at Le Cirque) yields elegant creations, like a raspberry soufflé with black truffle gelato.
