I will be in NYC for two days in early March. First trip in a long time - used to be in Manhattan 3 to4 times a year. Looking for a great Italian meal. Search revealed no recent discussions. I love Lupa - both the ambiance and the food. I also enjoyed Peasant and Frank on 2nd Ave. Inoteca is also an old favorite, but looking for something less hectic to relax with my date. Never been to Babbo, which may be more expensive than I want to spend. Also never been to Frankie restaurants, but don't see much recommendation of them in previous posts and wonder why not. Not looking for 4 star dining, and want to be welcome in jeans. Probably will want to go on Sunday night. Thanks for any ideas!
