This is the first US location of a Milan-based concept that involves both an Italian restaurant and a high-end retail space. We won’t comment too much on the retail area beyond saying that the Ferragamo sneakers or Commes Des Garcons wallets you’ll find there would be a very generous holiday gift for someone. As for the restaurant, it’s a huge space that looks like it could be off the lobby of a Vegas casino or onboard a passenger spaceship in the future. The Italian food, from vitello tonnato to cacio e pepe to branzino, is fine but expensive, and the only dish here that we would go out of our way to eat again is the lamb chops (they’re equal parts fatty, charred, buttery, and peppery, and they’re delicious). Overall, we wouldn’t recommend a full meal here unless you’re paying with a corporate card, or you just bought Ferragamo sneakers next door and don’t want to scuff them up by walking too far.

Dirty French is a Lower East Side French restaurant from the people behind Carbone, and like that place, dinner here is definitely an event.
Simon & The Whale
Simon and The Whale is the main restaurant at the Freehand Hotel, and it’s the sort of place where you can eat great food and run into an ex.
It is no understatement to say that Catch is the most over-the-top, ridiculous dining operation the Meatpacking District has ever seen. Thankfully though, the service is fantastic, and the food is pretty great as well, despite the absurdity of it all.
