“This is in my neighborhood. I was frequenting Da Silvano, and since the early 90s, started going to Bar Pitti, which is the more casual restaurant next door. It has great food, an endlessly cool crowd, and a wait staff that knows you without knowing youa perfect New York anonymity.” – Claudia Gould
