Locanda Verde, Tribeca

The Greenwich Hotel

New York City , New York
Tel: 212 925 3797's insider take:

The Greenwich Hotel, Robert De Niro's first starring role as a hotelier, has been a smash hit, but the restaurant, Ago, was an immediate flop. The actor wisely responded by shuttering the place and reopening months later with a new name and new chef. Locanda Verde is not just an improvement on its ghost-town predecessor, it's one of the city's most popular new restaurants. Andrew Carmellini, its immensely talented Italian-American chef, creates lusty, family-style food intended for sharing—this is a trattoria best enjoyed with a hungry group. Everything—from charred octopus to heaping bowls of red-sauce pasta to hearty platters of roast porchetta and chicken—arrives in the center of the table. Pass the dishes around for a Sunday-supper banquet any night of the week.—Jay Cheshes

Open daily 7 am to 11 pm.
