Manhattan – Midtown East
18 E 54th St between Fifth and Madison Aves
Manhattan, NY 10022
The Bruno brothers (chef Antonio, president Gerardo and wine director Cosimo) go straight to the family farm in Campania to get top-notch ingredients for their high-end oasis in midtown. (Frette napkins and white-coated waiters signal that you"ll want to put this one on the expense account.) Luscious burrata (an extra-creamy version of mozzarella) pairs beautifully with prosciutto and figs, and an appetizer of octopus, potatoes and green beans is perfectly dressed in a basil-and-lemon puree. Delicate house-made scialatielli pasta is topped with clams, asparagus and tomatoes. The massive wine list includes plenty of hard-to-find Italian vintages.
