The 8 Hottest New Italian Restaurants in NYC
Italian cuisine remains the most popular type of food in NYC year after year. Why? It's delicious and soulful yet minimalist; highlighting high-quality ingredients on each plate without overcomplicated additions. Still, these days, New Yorkers expect more than just a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs from their Italian restaurants. With more and more chefs exploring cuisine from the country's various regions (not to mention the Italian-American throwback trend), the diversity of Italian food available has never been greater. This fall, you can expect a few more new eateries to come your way, including Village spot Via Carota from chef couple Jody Williams and Rita Sodi (coming later in September) and the untitled High Line project from the Torrisi gang (look for it in early October). But for now, check out eight of the hottest new Italian restaurants in town.
