Even though the name of this stylish midtown restaurant means "crazy water," referring to the traditional southern-Italian practice of cooking a whole fish in seawater, its once seafood-centric menu has been expanded to include various crowd-pleasing preparations of beef, poultry, and game. Bistecca alla Fiorentina and pappardelle with porcini mushrooms make the premises safe for fishphobes.
