Across from Carnegie Hall, Trattoria Dell’Arte features the largest antipasto bar in New York, a sprawling selection of seafood and vegetable specialties perfect for parties of all sizes. Designed after a Tuscan artist’s studio, the rooms include half-finished paintings, oversized sculptures of fragmented body parts, a gallery of Italian noses, a wine cellar dining room, and candle-filled private rooms.<br /><br />The menu focuses on northern Italian specialties such as the steak Florentine, double veal chop, seafood specialties of the Mediterranean, and unforgettable desserts.

"We returned to Trattoria Dell'Arte for the umpteenth time for pre-theater dining. It proved reliable again, as it has through the years. The service seemed especially pleasant, from the maitre to the waiter. The artichokes alla Giudea are just ok, but the veal piccata and tagliolini al forno are both tasty and well prepared. The chocolate chip cannoli were the highpoint of the evening. Nice wine selection by the glass. If you are attending the theater or Carnegie Hall (right across the street), this is a good place to eat without being rushed, gouged, fussed over, etc. We would return, yet again."

"It's easy to find Brasserie food in NY, but L'Absinthe is certainly among the best in ambience and quality of food. The menu is recognizable but well executed. Escargot on shiitake caps are delicious, garlicky and tender, as well as bubbling hot. The quenelles of pike are a classic, light and rich. We had an excellent Puligny this time, chosen from a smallish but good wine list. Shared profiteroles (chocolate in a cruet on the side) were perfect. Good, friendly atmosphere, really couldn't ask for much more."
