If you make your way south on Mulberry Street from the Spring Street subway station, you better be hungry—and if you’re not, you will be soon. Mulberry Street is lined with Italian restaurants, and each claim to be “New York’s Best Italian restaurant.” So how do you choose which one will be best for dinner?
It’s definitely not easy, but I was glad I found my way Il Palazzo Ristorante Italiano. I was seduced by its high Zagat rating and a recommendation from a worker in the store next door, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The restaurant looks small from the street, but it’s roomy and romantic inside. When you go, grab a seat in the garden —the glass ceiling is picturesque and lends itself well to dinner dates.
Il Palazzo’s menu has pretty standard fare for an Italian restaurant—you’ll recognize most dishes on the menu—but the food is made from scratch, and it’s undeniably delicious. Try the homemade ravioli or the eggplant parmesan for a classic done perfectly, or if you’re lucky, see if the seafood pasta is on special (it’s rich, but extraordinary).
Il Palazzo isn’t cheap—and the portions are enormous—so consider splitting a few entrees if you have a larger group. Also, make sure you ask for the prices of the specials (they’re not printed on the menu, and some of them are pretty pricey).
