Best In: NYC – SD26 San Domenico Italian Cuisine
WHERE: 19 East 26th Street
Madison Square Park
New York NY, 10010
WHY WE HEART IT: SD26 combines the necessities of a classic Italian fine-dining experience with a warm welcoming, part-of-the-famiglia feel. Owned by legendary father-daughter restauranteurs Tony May & Marisa May, SD26 promises and delivers an authentic Italian dining experience…one that transports you right to that boot to the east. From the Northern Italian-born and bred Executive Chef Matteo Bergamini, to the pristine service, mouth-watering menu and the always delightful visit from Marisa May herself, you start to wonder if the SD really means San Delizioso! With a beautiful culture-inspired decor spun with a modern, sexy NYC vibe, incredible Italian food and a 750-label wine list, Italy is miles closer than you think. No passport needed.
WHAT TO ORDER: If you can only order one thing from SD26, make it the “Uovo”- a Soft Egg Yolk filled Raviolo with Truffled Butter ($23). BRACE YOURSELF for the deliciousness of this dish may be too much for you to handle. In fact, do yourself a favor and order one to eat there and one to go. You will find yourself having psychotic cravings for it’s buttery goodness in the middle of the night.
