We've been to all Batali/Bastianich restaurants in NYC and love them. We've also been to Lincoln Ristorante, A Voce, Il Buco Alimentari, and a few others I cannot think of right now.
It is coming up on one month before my birthday, so reserving a table will be a priority for my husband. That said, I would like to go to an Italian restaurant that is more uopscale than not, but does not have to be in a league with Del Posto. A few places that have been on our radar for a while (but have never been to) are:
Any recent experiences/ thoughts on these places? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
