Village Voice's Description

Felidia is one of those Midtown East places run by New York restaurant royalty--and in this case it's Lidia Bastianich, mastermind of Manhattan staples Lupa, Esca, and Becco. (She also had a show on PBS, for what that's worth.) Run daily by chef Fortunato Nicotra, Felidia does justice to the big names (and legacy) associated with it. Whole wheat orecchiette with anchovies, and a mixed grill of scallops, lobster, calamari, shrimp and razor clams are dishes typical of the decadent, meat-heavy menu. But of course, it's heavily Italian, so there's plenty of pasta, and the best is the rich duck and mushroom pappardelle. All of the dishes are carefully crafted, and unlike most high-class, traditional-fare restaurants, gluten/dairy free options abound. The wine list is what could be expected of a high traffic legacy restaurant: Pricy and well sourced from all over the world, but heavy on Europe--just like the food. --Shane Barnes

Tips from foursquare

  • Gilt City on 09/26/11

    Chef Fortunato Nicotra delivers Italian entrees that pay homage to founder Lidia Bastianich’s roots. Especially stunning are the sauces laced with exotic ingredients like fennel pollen.

  • Behind The Burner on 03/23/10

    Lidia Bastianich is genius...she even adds apples to her sauce. Amazing!

    i could go there, sit at the tiny bar and eat my favorite carpaccio di pesce almost every single day...

  • ThePurplePassport.com on 01/20/12

    We adore the charming space, the flawless service, and, of course, the chance to chat with Lidia. Be sure to try the limoncello tiramisu at the end of your meal.
