Ai Fiori (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Michael White's foray down the Riviera, from Liguria to Nice, may be his most exciting restaurant to date, a procession of dishes far sunnier than the hotel surroundings would intimate.

Porsena (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

We'd walk over the Brooklyn Bridge (and do) for Sara Jenkins's porchetta, sliced thickly and piled onto bread at her East Village Porchetta—but the lack of seating and wine list make it mainly an on-the-fly affair. Now there's Porsena—still porky, but with a long bar perfect for...Read Full Story

Barbuto (Restaurant/Bar/Retail Reviews)

Barbuto offers some of the best dining in NY's West Village—not so surprising, given it's run by Jonathan Waxman, chef behind '80s sensation Jams and the recently-shuttered Washington Park. What's startling is the prices: Everything on the menu runs less than $20, save for...Read Full Story
