help need good italian!
help-new yorker living in dallas now so out of touch with new great restaurants, coming into the city for my husbands BIG birthday. i'm the host for a party of 6. looking for great italian-old school-no fried sardines and skate! want the real deal-calamari -not fried- scungille,osso bucco, great veal ,etc.tried batali's del posto. they have set menu price fix of $95. don't want to have to order a certain amount of food. suggestions??
Just to clarify... by "great italian-old school-no fried sardines and skate! want the real deal" do you mean traditional Italian-American food? Or food you might actually find in Italy? Based on the mention of scungilli, it sounds like the former to me but please confirm.
check out the menu at Crispo. it has quickly become our favorite italian place. they don't serve all the dishes you mentioned, but they offer a wide selection of meats and fish. the Trofie al Prosciutto is one of my top five dishes in all of Manhattan.
