Location Description:

An awesome wine list greets you at this Mario Batali-style modern Italian spot, and many of the best bottles are also available in quartino (one-third bottle) portions. By sharing courses, one may easily pursue the three-course meal that is standard in Italy, and our recommendations are as follows: appetizer;truffled polenta with a runny egg on top; primo;chicken liver ravioli in a dark fragrant sauce; secondo;lamb cutlet served Milanese-style, breaded and fried with an arugula salad heaped on top. As a general rule, pastas trump the other two courses. The interior is exactly what you'd expect on Avenue B.
