Il Principe, the brainchild of restaurateur Sean Largotta (Crown, The Lion) and Casa Lever chef Carlo Bigi, sits in the chic Hotel Hugo on Greenwich Street. The dining room itself is upscale in a modern and comfortable way, with a living wall in the gardenlike semi-private dining area, comfortable leather banquettes, and an abundance of mirrors. The food is hearty Italian with an elegant touch: Successful dishes include starters like a rich baked eggplant with buffalo mozzarella, tomato sauce, and fresh basil; and filet mignon carpaccio with Castelmagno cheese, hazelnut, and celery leaves. Don’t overlook creative sides, like Brussels sprouts “cacio e pepe,” too. Pastas – all made in-house – like the nice, creamy linguine with garlic, Manila clams, and breadcrumbs, are well made. There is also an extensive wine list (complete with knowledgeable sommelier to help you navigate it) and cocktails like the “Tuscan Sour” with rye, lemon juice, sugar, and red wine.Note
Brunch service to launch in the coming weeks.Recommended Dishes
