Executive chef Michael Cetrulo opened his second Scalini Fedeli restaurant (the first one is in Chatham, NJ) in the former Bouley space in 2000. Since then, it's gained a reputation for being a sophisticated spot to enjoy some solid Italian cuisine. Choose from two dining options: a $65 three-course prix-fixe menu including dishes like pappardelle with venison and New Zealand langoustines over celery root puree, and a six-course, $90 tasting menu, which spans different regions of Italy with dishes like braised short ribs of beef from Tuscany, gently seared hamachi from Sicily and porcini mushroom ravioli from Piedmont. The 300-strong wine list features plenty of Italian and New World bottles, with a few selections ringing in at just over $35. A subtle, romantic design scheme featuring high, arched ceilings, antiques, colorful landscapes and suited waiters make Scalini Fedeli a popular spot for both dates and business dinners.—Keith Wagstaff
