Address: 50 Third Street
Drawing on a range of culinary traditions, Ducca pulls off unexpected combinations like oxtail gnocchetti with citrus gremolata, and monkfish in jalapeño and mint marinade. Seafood dominates, but the menu has enough variety to please a picky crowd, and the service is as warm as the fire pit out on the terrace. Murano glass chandeliers, some playfully grouped in threes, highlight the designers' attention to detail: a copper-handled fork, French cuffs on the waiters' shirts. And if you're staying at the recently revamped Westin Market Street, your room is just an elevator ride away (entrées, $9$34).
