so Le Zie and manzo both sound great....the stuzzichini sounds great but wonder if we could get in and out as fast as manzo. I have been to babbo and otto and lupa so not sure if this would be same style?

a little help for May 28th visit...50th birthday

This board has been very helpful over the years. I am looking for recommendations. Me and my wife both enjoy Italian, we have tried Babbo, Lupa, Otto, and Becco. Have read rewiews of others on this board. Price is not an issue. Would like something that is has great pasta, and maybe meats as well. Also we are thinking of place for Tapas, we love Casa Mono. Location is not an issue as long as in Manhattan. Also looking for a nice place for wine before dinner maybe in village. We are in town friday -monday afternoon. Finally a place for good duck, could be chineese or duck in general.

thanks

August 7-11th visit

Thanks again for this board..has helped me plan 3 great visits. This trip will be with whole family, who are after red sause Italian. We have been to Becco, but they are looking for best eggplant parmegiann in city. travel is not issue as we will be staying in finanical district.

Planned meals so far are Balthazar for breakfast:daughters looking forward to scene and food. Thinking of going back to have them experience Cafe de Brussles for mussels. Thinking of ateros? pizza...end of same block as Lupa.

rest of visit in terms of meals are open...we will be spending most of our time in soho, noho, EV and WV.

I will be more focused as we get closer, but red sause Italian is key....
