  • Breakfast sandwich is the sleeper hit here. Great hidden spot for b'fast mtg
  • In the morning, a casual cafe offering light breakfast dishes. In the middle of the day, an Italian delicatessen. And at night, a bustling bar and dining room serving a menu of rustic Italian fare.
  • It's fourmaybe morerestaurants in one! Breakfast: sleepy, quiet, delicious. Lunch: hopping; sit at the bar at back. Afternoon: get bread and cured meat to go. Evening: slammed; yummers.
  • From the best Porchetta sandwich in the world, the best short rib sandwich in the world, to perfect pastas and salads, this place is truly Magical! I come for lunch often. Meet me! - foodiemagician
  • The carbonara is an essential New York bite: pasta tossed with house-cured pancetta, eggs, Parmesan, and black pepper. More places to eat like a local:
  • Go for the house-prepared salumi ($10-$32). You can make a meal of the salumi, wine and cheese offerings, but then you'd miss the artfully prepared appetizers and entrees.
  • The real secret of this place is that they serve breakfast and it's reasonably priced. $5 for delicious baked eggs is hard to beat.
  • Charcuterie! Pasta! Ribs! Ricotta! Agnolotti! Affogato! Agrodolce (cocktail with rye and aged balsamic)! Even the bread and evoo is DAMN GOOD.
  • This was right around the corner from our old Bond St offices and it was one of our favorite haunts. It's a great place for an afternoon cup of coffee.
  • The breakfast pizza with house cured prosciutto is great and big enough to feed two. Sneaky good brunch spot that takes reservations.
  • Delicious Italian in a lively atmosphere, but the real stars of the show are the short ribs for 2, the porcetta sandwich and the Cacio e Pepe. They're totally worth the hype.
  • The offshoot of Il Buco just nails everything it tries, from the housemade charcuterie to the gelato for dessert. In a town of so many Italian restaurants, this is one to know.
  • Great ambiance upstairs. Enjoyed the salted beets and the veal pasta.
  • Short ribs sandwich is like the sound of your grandmother saying "I love you" but in food form.
  • The branzino is a must like the cacique e peppe
  • Short rib for two (or three). If you don't get it, you're totes a loser.
  • overpriced, underwhelmed.
  • The seared octopus at Il Buco Alimentari e Vineria, is not only done just rightcrispy on the outside, a bit gooey on the insidebut comes with a supporting cast of chickpeas and pickled currents.
  • In the front: a caf, a bakery, and a provisions shop for house-cured salumi or casual lingering. At the back, a dining area with a perfect little menu of Italian classics.
  • Spit roast beef ribs. Wow.
