Golden Spoon

Hidden amid the towering downtown boom is a gem of exquisitie modern Italian from chef Michael Buttacavoli. He is a master of unique pastas, oxtail gnocchi, fregola and clever risottos (scallops, hot pepper and sage), all dressed with exotic mushrooms, figs and bold cheeses. Stay late; the pastry chef is his equal.
