At this eponymous jewel box, Chef Marc Vetri has been serving up a faultless blend of contemporary and classic Italian cuisine that quickly put him on foodies’ radar after he opened the doors in 1998. On weekends, the intimate trattoria’s 40 seats fill up quickly with diners poised for personalized, multi-course tasting menus culled from a rotation of seasonal ingredients. Call two months in advance for weekend tables, and know upfront that the tasting menus cost upwards of $100. Those without an expense account should head north to Vetri’s casual, yet equally acclaimed Osteria, where lightly charred pizzas and lighter-than-air gnocchi don’t come cheap, but won’t break the bank either.
