Any new Italian? In NY for one night.

I have been to Lupa and babbo. I loves both. But I am looking for any suggestions for great Italian. I know it's a big question but I am more looking for any new hip upscale Italian. Nothing quiet and boring. Thanks

  1. Scarpetta? Osteria Morini? Locanda Verde? All three are on the hipper side and will be loud/crowded.

      Thanks kathryn. I was at scarpetta once and notices the menu to be very limited. How do the other places fare?

        I don't think the Scarpetta menu is all that limited (but it doesn't change a whole lot from season to season), unless you're looking for a specific item?

    2. Maialino is terrific.

        It is, but I wouldn't really call it hip.

      2. Ciano?

        1. I'd second Locanda Verde. Good food, noisy hip atmosphere. It probably fits your bill the best of what's been suggested so far, with Maialino a close second.

          1. Manzo is a new Italian restaurant owned by the Batali/Bastianich team.

              and thus is the antithesis of "hip"...not to mention located in an Epcot-like foodcourt...
