SF Hound seeks advice
We'll be in Manhattan ever so briefly. I am looking for great Italian. We will be staying
in Chelsea but take the subway all over the city. We ate at Babbo last visit and actually were somewhat underwhelmed. We'd probably go with less pricey and love small neighborhood places even more than destination restaurants.
im with you...very underwhelmed by batali places.
id try these...my favorite italian spots...more on the low end:
and in brooklyn...al di la and noodle pudding
most of these places do not take reservations but the wait isnt too bad. i can promise you some excellent neighborhood casual italian here.
