Carbone – New York – a MICHELIN Guide Restaurant

The ever-so-stylish Carbone continues to captivate audiences with its striking interior and smartly dressed servers who work the floor with a bit of flirt and flair. Reservations remain scarce and prices sky high at this big and bold ode to Italian-American cuisine. Dinner reigns supreme, though crowds are present at all times, largely thanks to the sense of history that pervades the space—imagine plush banquettes, impressive ceramics and glittering chandeliers.
Mid-century classics are the focus of this menu. Antipasti like crusty garlic bread or olive oil-dunked mozzarella may be trailed by evergreen hits like rigatoni alla vodka or spaghetti alla gricia. The blackout cake sounds simple but is pure pleasure.
