New York NY 10011
Having earned a coveted four-star rating in The New York Times (the first Italian restaurant to do so since 1974), Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali's temple of contemporary Italian fine dining ranks in a class of its own. In a space that is both luxurious and remarkably comfortable, executive chef Mark Ladner, with the help of pastry chef Brooks Headley, serves dishes that build on the classics with a true innovative spirit, and get this — they’ve created a database of videos showing how to make dishes at home. Specialties include "yesterday's 100-layer lasagna," native swordfish involtini with smoky cabbage and Arborio rice salad in Barolo sauce, and Sardinian lamb with Roman artichokes and saffron potatoes. And while the menu is quite expensive, their $39 prix fixe lunch menu is nothing short of a steal. — Maryse Chevriere

The art of elegant tableside service resurfaces downtown at this Italian restaurant by Mario Batali and Co. See the review of this Italian restaurant at 85 Tenth Ave. in Manhattan.
The formal, fine dining jewel in Mario Batali's restaurant empire; consider their weekday prix-fixe lunch for the same exquisite food at a much lower price.
You can't do better than simple, fragile pasta e fagioli soup with crunchy fried ditalini pasta and a soft tripe-and-andouille meatball. Or try the 100 Layer Lasagna!

We can't get enough of the excellent food and dramatic surroundings. And because (at least) five courses are expected of diners at dinnertime, there is no guilt in enjoying a true feast!
One Michelin star.

The Prix Fixe Lunch menu for $39 is an amazing deal. Try the Lobster Salad, the Gnocchi and the Chocolate Ricotta Tortino.
Order the five-course tasting menu, but make it six courses by adding a third pasta. What? You didn’t come here to save money.
