Years ago chowhound members recommended Trattoria Trecolori to us for our annual holiday trip to NYC. They are closed for renovations until 01/07. I need your help again.
We are looking for something on the same lines. Italian. Late lunch. Casual dress. NY-old world Italian atomosphere. Family italian style is fine too.
This year we are taking the train to Penn Station and want to walk to the restaurant, then to the tree, then back to the train. Any great chocolate places (or hot chocolate/coffee dessert places) on the way back would be a bonus.
