Wading through the many dining choices Manhattan has to offer and am drawn to La Masseria - 235 W. 48th St. due to its seeming authenticity, appealing/warm "look" and also the menu. Am I on track? If so, this will be one of three dinners I need to plan and I need to zero in on two more. Are there other places that are similar or even better? Am I making a mistake with La Masseria? I welcome your input.
