    Delicious small dishes to share - esp recommend the quinoa salad and the pastas. And make sure you try the desserts - yummy! A bit pricey however - expect to pay $100 per person with tax/tip.

    The honey pot and Ron burgundy are amazing to start. Actually you could skip dessert and just lick the caramel rim of the honey pot. You'll look a little weird but you might make some friends.

    Sleek, candlelit wine bar featuring excellent an Italian wine list, is one of the city's most romantic and underrated spots. Winner of Village Voice Best of NYC Critic's choice for best wine bar!

    Pastas star at this cozy Piedmontese spot—we love the lamb ragu. The two-course prix fixe dinner menu, available Tuesday through Saturday, is a good deal.

    Tucked away in the LES. This place has it all. Atmosphere, food & service that will impress even your toughest food critic. Musts: Broccoli tempura, pork rillettes, & short rib pasta.

    Eat here! Food is incredible, service is perfect, soundtrack is solid, and there's a picture of two french bulldogs cuddling in the bathroom.

    Don't miss the broccoli fritto. Might not be the healthiest preparation of broccoli but it's definitely one of the most delicious.

    Really enjoyed it. Small plates are the way to go. Fried broccoli dish and chicken liver mouse are excellent. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    gnocchi are unreal. bombolini are a great choice for dessert. music ties it all together, 1 amazing song after another. must warn you, open kitchen makes this place so warm. avoid during heat waves.

    Loved beef agnolotti, lamb ragu tajarin, ramps risotto, spinach side & burrata special. For dessert: order bambaloni & pb gelato. To drink: gin cocktail or dolcetti di dogliani 2008 red wine.

    the pastas are great and the veal tongue bruschetta were to die for. a bit overpriced though given the pasta portion size
