Emilio’s Ballato is one of the great Italian restaurants in New York City. They don’t take reservations so you usually have to work some magic to get in the door. And that’s what adds to its mystique.
Via Carota – quite possibly the best Italian food in all of New York City (highly debatable though). Situated right on Grove street across from Bar Pisellino, this place is a true West Village gem. And usually impossible to get a table any night of the week.
Morandi, a creation by Keith McNally in 2007, is still bustling like the doors just opened. Situated at the nexus of Charles and Waverly Place, it has a magnetic way of steering people in. The lovely outdoor seating sprawls onto the street creating a beautiful spectacle of Italian Fare.
33 Greenwich is an elegant American style restaurant with an artful nod towards the South. Seasoned restauranteur Danny Volk partnered up with headliner Chef Anne Thornton to deliver southern-inspired flavor to the West Village.
La Sirena is chef Mario Batali’s latest creation in New York since the world renown Eataly. You can find it gracefully perched up on the plaza level of the Maritime Hotel in Chelsea.
When Chef Daniel Humm is in the kitchen, expect anything but ordinary. The NoMad Bar is the long awaited, casual creation by the man behind Michelin three star restaurant Eleven Madison Park. The establishment is reflective of a classic New York City tavern, yet treated with the hospitality and service of a top tier restaurant.
Opened in 1837, Delmonico’s was the first fine dining restaurant in the country. The fixture for Wall Street eats has stood the test of time, serving up the ‘gold-standard’ of meat for nearly two centuries. Home to movie stars, socialites and nearly every president since Lincoln, Delmonico’s stands alone as a true icon of old New York.
Buvette Gastrotheque is a French-inspired, small plate sanctuary nestled on 42 Grove Street. Chef Jody Williams is the mastermind behind the quaint establishment, curating the look and feel of a cafe transported from Paris all the way to the West Village.
An authentic trattoria brought to you from the southern part of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region, Malatesta rarely changes yet always manages to warm hearts and exceed expectations.
