Del Posto vet John Di Lemme puts an Italian spin on chophouse fare in midtown.

By Christina Izzo

Mario Batali protégé John Di Lemme—who's flexed his culinary muscles at Lupa, Del Posto and Vegas's Enoteca San Marco—retools the old-school New York chophouse with Italian flair. The wood-paneled, bi-level eatery—classically decked out with white tablecloths and round booths—features hearty steakhouse staples like bone-in rib eye, porterhouse and a pork chop paired with charred apple, radicchio and fried pork rind. Along with Italian-tinged fare like crudos and house-made pastas, there's a smattering of lighter eats available at the mahogany bar downstairs. Nosh on cured meats (wild-boar salumi, coppa), oxtail terrine and guanciale-flavored mussels in between sips of Italian craft beer (such as Baladin Nora) and cocktails, like a whiskey-based Paloma (Midleton, Cointreau, pear brandy, grapefruit and lime juice). 42 W 48th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves (212-262-6200)
