Village Voice's Description

Go big or go home must have been Michael White's thinking when he opened the sleek Ai Fiori on the second floor of the Setai Hotel just a few months after debuting Osteria Morini. Luxury abounds on the Franco-Italian menu-begin with the butter-poached oysters topped with caviar or the "mare e monte" (a marriage of scallops, truffles, and bone marrow) before moving on to the toothsome pastas or the robust veal chop with sauce perigueux. A la carte dining can run steep (entrees hover around $40), but a $79, four-course prix fixe lets diners sample a range of dishes at a (slightly) discounted rate. But truth be told, this refined, sedate space is meant for expense-account dining.

    You know you’re getting that butter-poached lobster, or the lamb, so work back from there, with wines to match. Oh, man.

  • Time Out New York on 10/05/11

    Try the luxurious scallop and bone marrow starter. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.

    The room is soulless, but Michael White produces some of the best haute Italian cooking in town. One of our best restaurants for 2012!

  • Village Voice on 11/14/11

    Winner of Best Italian (Upscale) in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! Four courses of amazing food for $84 is a steal.

  • Try a wine from the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France (the AG Wine app covers both regions). Excellent values can be found here and wines will pair well with Michael White's delicious food!
