If you’ve got to feed a crowd, Paladar 511 is where you head to make sure everyone’s happy. As the night wears on, this place truly comes alive as the chatter from every table inside this lofty Italian restaurant is fueled by a few great cocktails and one of our favorite wine lists around. The menu here is all about pizza, pastas, and hearty sauces, but make sure the squid ink spaghetti is on your table. With its perfectly cooked shrimp, you’ll end up fighting over who gets the last one, which come swimming in a Calabrian chili butter we’d happily buy by the jar. For pizza, order the Farm Egg, which also comes topped with bacon and collard greens and is worth every messy bite. Save room for dessert too, because the dark chocolate budino is one of the best sweet finishes in the city.
