This Manhattan spinoff of the East Hampton classic is literally a hot spot, with flavorful Mediterranean food sizzling and roasting in the wood-burning oven. Ingredients are top-notch, wines well selected, and the oven-roasted chicken and whole fish consistently satisfying. Pizza night on Sunday gives John's a run for its thin-crust money. Nick & Toni's caters to a ranging clientele: ABC execs at lunch; post-IMAX dates at dinner; Reebok members doing après-workout damage at the bar.Brunch
