Becco (best deal in Midtown is the $25 nightly three pasta special)
Trattoria d'ell Arte
Skip Little Italy. The restaurants are mediocre at best.
Italian/Med. Peter - owner.
Notaro - 2nd Ave, between 34th and 35th St. Tuscan Italian. No website.
Excellent review in Zagat Guide. 212-686-3400 Angelo - owner.
Both of these are favorites of ours. Notaro is a little less pricey than Aleo. I would describe Notaro as moderately priced and Aleo as high moderate.
But food is a little better at Aleo with a better wine selection.
Favorite in my neighborhood for Casual French: Chez Napoleon (365 W 50th ST)
We'll be at the Warwick but can go most anywhere as I plan to cover a lot of territory in a fairly short time!
The whole place is a very kitschy and warm tribute to owner, Jean-Claude's adoptive Mother, Josephine Baker - who was a wonderful woman and adopted many children.
I've eaten there many times and and recommend it.
I've never heard of the other place you mentioned. I looked it up in Zagat and it's not listed, so I can't give you any feedback on it. Sorry.
If you like french and are in the West Village, I like Jarnac on Greenwich and 12th Streets. www.Jarnacny.com It's very small and many people don't know it.
If you're in the East Village or the Lower East Side, I like 26 Seats on 10th Street and Ave B www.26seats.com Another very small (seats 26!) french spot that many people don't know about. Very reasonably priced.
Thank you so much for all of the guidance. I know we'll have a great time.
It's the best city in the world......of course you will!
Also check out the restaurant next to our hotel (Casablanca Hotel on 43rd St.) Tony's de Napoli.Why? What about it did you like so much?
Anywhere you go you will have fun in the best city in the world!
What I liked about Tony's di Napoli was the decor, ambiance and the selection of food. I had an excellent ceasar salad at the bar one night. The place was packed at 10:30pm with both locals and tourists. There seemed to be very few really good restaurants right in Times Square and this one, adjacent to the Casablanca Hotel, is 1/2 blocks away.
I realise resataurant row on 46th street probably has better places but this seemed like a great place especially if you are staying right in Times Square. I wish we had discovered it earlier in our trip.
