NYC hound headed to Rome in a few weeks with a good friend. I've been lurking on this board for several months and would love some feedback on our itinerary. It's really aggressive (not listed are the wine bars we'll be frequenting in between meals) but we can handle it.
I want to be sure we get a leisurely lunch in and a high-end tasting menu for dinner. We're open on classic Roman vs. modern, and price isn't an object.
Thursday: arrive hopefully in time for a late lunch. Staying near the Trevi Fountain.
Taverna dei fori imperiali?
Trattoria Cavalier Gino?
For dinner, making a meal out of various wine bars: Le Barrique, Palatium, Enoteca Cavour, etc.
L’Asino D’Oro set lunch (will hopefully be able to make a resy)
For dinner: Metamorfosi?
Pipero al Rex?
Long leisurely lunch - ? Would love to set out for lunch not in the neighborhood and then be able to meander back. Thoughts?
Dinner: Trattoria Monti
Can't remember when we leave, but am thinking there will only really be time for a leisurely breakfast. Will possibly check out Babington's.
