The lowdown

Just try to keep a low profile at Downtown Cipriani. Full visibility is afforded by a loftlike space, open front doors, and a heated sidewalk area that allows outdoor people-watching to take place much longer than the seasons deem possible. Judging by the copious show of skin on any given day, it’s clear that this is the “young” version of the more traditional uptown Cipriani. If you dare to order dessert, remember the made-to-order vanilla ice cream takes up to ten minutes to prepare. And take caution with the crêpes à la crème — the sweet crêpes and custard in a puddle of Grand Marnier are set ablaze at your table. But chances are if you’re eating here, you know fire — dining at Downtown Cipriani usually means you’ve got money to burn.
