sunday dinner in NYC - urgent!

Thanks for all the suggestions! We ended up not fighting it and went to Gramercy Tavern. But I am looking forward to checking out some of these places in the future (especially apizz and l'impero) on my next trip!

sunday dinner in NYC - urgent!

my sister and i want to do dinner in a superb NYC restaurant sunday night (that is two days from now). any suggestions? we love italian but are open to other types. We prefer 3 course prix fixe or tasting menus. Gramercy Tavern is available. But I am looking for any other suggestions. Apizz, Scalini Fedeli are closed that evening.

L’Orcio in New Haven: Best Italian Restaurant I Know

I just ate at L Orcio last week for the first time. Excellent. Excellent. Excellent. We got the gnochhi, caprese salad, and ravioli and enjoyed them. I wouldnt get their lemon tart though - too dry for my taste. Make reservations in advance to eat outside or by the window in the restaurant which are very pretty seats.
