Forlini’s below Canal Street represents the hilarious intersection of people who have lived in the city for 60+ years, New York State Supreme Court justices, and skateboarders slash models (and not the other way around). It has the look of an underground supper club, with framed portraits on the wooden walls and big portions of veal parm and clams casino on the tables. If you're throwing a birthday party, opt for the $70-per-person set dinner (a price that already includes tax and a 15% base tip). Otherwise, you can order family-style platters of red-sauce pasta and plenty of bread refills, and you should be good to go.
