Taking wife for the first time. Flying in Friday night, so need something low key. Staying midtown east. She wants Italian. Don't mind a short cab but nothing crazy.

Please no 5 star celebrity places Local and out of the way.

Il Gatopardo it was. Very good, very pricey. I enjoyed the sprezzatura display of the hosts and table of friends more than the food.

Saturday was northern spy in the east village. Heavy heavy recommendation.

Dim sum Sunday !

Northern spy is a nice neighborhood joint but not a destination place. I prefer Il buco alimentari these days for when I go downtown.

I'm not that big a fan of Locanda Verde to make the hassle worth it. Last time I went it was busy and had to wait even when we had reservations. I prefer The Leopard, Il Gatopardo's sister restaurant, closer to my hood. The murals are gorgeous.
