Apiary or I Trulli
I know this is a strange question because these are two completely different restaurants, but if you had to choose between Apiary and I Trulli, which would it be?
Am more interested in food than ambience, etc. Have wanted to try the fried rabbit at I Trulli but notice that Apiary has a rabbit dish as well.
Any thoughts are appreciated.

I'm a big ITrulli fan, eaten there several times, highly recommend it.
However, I no longer live in NYC and have not been to Apiary so I cannot compare the two.
That said - get to ITrulli when you can. You will enjoy it.
We have been to both, but I have not tried the rabbit dishes at either. That said, I would choose Apiary because Scott Bryan is a superb chef (previously at Veritas), and his food far surpasses what is served at I Trulli insofar as main courses are concered. While I Trulli's pastas are excellent, the main courses we had there were disappointing. I do love their garden.

P.S. I have read positive reports about the rabbit pappardelle at Apiary. Also, you probably know that if you go on a Monday, it's BYO with no corkage.
