Expert review of Maialino NYC

One of New York’s current hotspots with great trattoria fare.

Danny Meyer, the owner of Maialino, has become a New York legend for his excellent restaurants and has done it again with his latest venture. I don’t think I have had Roman food so good outside of Italy.

Food and drink: 

Think of a classic Italian trattoria with a much more upscale environment, with dishes like the terrific tonarelli cacio e pepe, spaghetti carbonara and meaty entrees like braised lamb and veal T-bone. My only caveat is that brunch is missable as far as I am concerned.

Ambience: 

This is a dining room where New York’s elite meet in a bustling open space - think power brokers on expense accounts, fashion editors post shows and foodies who know their pasta.

Service: 

As in all of Meyer’s restaurants the staff are professional, courteous and well-versed in both food and wine.

Location: 

Housed in the trendy Gramercy Park Hotel near the beautiful private Gramercy Park, this is about as an enviable address as you can have.

Price advice: 

It may be humble delicious fare but the prices are New York elite, ranging from US$18-$32.

Tables to book: 

This hotspot is one of the city’s toughest reservations to snag. Don’t be surprised if you can only get a 6.30pm or 11pm spot, even if you are a hotel guest.
