I'm starting a new thread because I don't see a recent dedicated thread for this place.
But mainly, I want to thank hounds who recommended it in threads about Lincoln Center. Because the thing is, this is a place worth going to, regardless of whether you are going to a concert or not.
I felt like doing something fun with my girlfriend tonight, so we got 9:15 reservations. We had a selection of salumi, caponata, escarole sauteed in extra virgin olive oil with chili flakes, and brussels sprouts with pancetta. All dishes were pleasant and flavorful. We had 2 glasses of wine each. I highly recommend the red wine that costs $16 a glass. I don't remember its name off hand, but our waiter described it as their "biggest, baddest wine," and it started off with a delicious taste like dark cherries and then had a great aftertaste. Without wine, our meal probably would have cost $60-something, including tip. As it was, the bill was $107, not overpriced at all.
This place is really fun, and I definitely plan on returning.
