Resy 28 days in advance at 9am ET

One of my top three favorite restaurants in the city and Danny Meyer's first restaurant.  It's the perfect place for dinner with the parents, a date night out, or a nicer dinner catching up with friends.  The menu changes based on what's in season but I love the polenta, bibb & red oak leaf lettuce salad (a signature), any of their pastas, and the scallops in season.  The desserts are TO DIE for.

Candele: asparagus, spring Onion, pancetta, greek yogurt
