As far as Donatella Arpaia was concerned, her first restaurant, Bellini, might have been a success, but it didn’t reflect her personality—not in the trendy, buzzy way that her subsequent ventures (davidburke&donatella and Ama) did. So she hired a designer to give the stodgy midtown spot a bright white face-lift and zebra-print carpet, partnered with Onera chef Michael Psilakis, and reopens this week as Dona, an upscale southern-European restaurant. Each raised on Long Island by immigrant parents, Arpaia and Psilakis have collaborated on what they call first-generation cuisine—a blend of her Italian heritage and his Greek one, expressed in dishes like sea-urchin crudo with burrata, caviar, and fava-bean purée, and spaghetti with eggplant-and-lamb "Bolognese."
