Need recs for dinner in the 30s East Side near Lex

My companion has said she wants either Mexican, Italian or "fancy." Anyone?

  1. How about Vamos? It's not too far...20th and 1st.

    Here's a review from earlier today:


    1. For Italian go to A Voce ( Madison Ave & 26th)
      For fancy, Eleven Madison Park (11 Madison Ave & 24th) - Hands down, Highly Recommend

      1. Been to Eleven Madison - agree that it is wonderful! Perhaps I'll check out A Voce. Will we need a reservation if we go early (6ish)?

        1. I held an event and have eaten at 11 Madison. It's pretty good.

          I would suggest English is Italian at about 40th and 3rd. It is excellent. It hits Italian and is somewhat fancy.

          1. I've heard nothing but good things about I Trulli. I believe it's in the 20s near Lex. Two of my friends who are not friends per se, have gone on dates there and have raved about it! Esp. the orrechiette
