The most important part of a literary agent's day is lunch, and this is the place many of them go to. It is also a favorite of New York's theater set, making it a place to see minor celebrities. Close to Broadway, Orso is a cheerful, well-lit spot with an open kitchen and a boisterous crowd, and it is especially buzzing at lunch. The Italian menu ranges from pizza to such dishes as Carpaccio Con Parmigiano, and Grilled Tuna with Orzo Pasta Salad.
