Ai Fiori
The room is soulless, but Michael White produces some of the best haute Italian cooking in town (400 Fifth Ave.; 212-613-8660).

Boulud Sud
Daniel’s homage to Mediterranean cuisine is the great Frenchman’s most vibrant new establishment in years (20 W. 64th St.; 212-595-1313).

Brushstroke
The omakase setup may leave some cold, but there’s no doubting the quality of Isao Yamada’s nouveau kaiseki menu (30 Hudson St.; 212-791-3771).

Ciano
Shea Gallante’s nouveau rustico Italian cooking is stylish without being pretentious (45 E. 22nd St.; 212-982-8422).
