Come to Principe in Soho for their impossibly pillowy ndunderi and a scene filled with people who treat every week like it’s Fashion Week. This spacious seafood-focused, Italian-inspired spot—from folks who used to work at The Modern and The Nomad—looks like it used to be a stylish boutique, with concrete walls, dramatic glass chandeliers, and a raw bar station set up like a DJ booth. Start with the marinated tuna on a daikon disc or the creamy king crab, followed by the colatura-dressed sucrine salad and the big crispy chicken cutlet that tastes like a McNugget. Amazing (free) sourdough flatbread comes with goat butter and Calabrian chili oil, but the ndunderi’s lemon-butter sauce is actually the best sidekick for dipping.
