This East Village Italian restaurant is still perpetually packed thanks to its stint on a memorable episode of Sex and the City (Carrie’s failed 35th birthday party took place at a table here), and its top notch Italian fare. Order the fantastic homemade pastas, like pappardelle with hot Italian sausage and peas, plus entrees like a broiled rack of lamb. This is splurgey takeout at its best and a lunch that you'll dream about for days, available Monday through Friday.
Let's face it: not every single day can be an exciting one—even in a city like NYC. But you know what can really turn the mood around? Lunch.
