I pose it to you, beloved experts, to help me on this. My birthday. Fine Italian (any region). Manhattan.
Here are my criteria:
1. No small precious portions (I eat BIG)
2. Reservations accepted please (optional, but prefered)
3. As good/better than Del Anima, Scarpetta, Babbo, you get the idea....
4. Open to places all over the price scale, and I am NOT looking for expensive places exclusively
This is harder than I thought it would be. I am very open to suggestions. Thanks in advance.
