Carbone is an Italian-American restaurant created by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick. The restaurant pays homage to the essence of the great Italian-American restaurants of mid-20th century in New York, where delicious, exceptionally well-prepared food was served in settings that were simultaneously elegant, comfortable and unpretentious. The food nods to that same history, but take its culinary cues from the great talents and techniques of the present and of the future. Familiar dishes like Seafood Salad, Linguini Vongole, Lobster Fra Diavola, Chicken Scarpariello and Veal Parmesan elevated to a new level.

"I'd been wanting to eat there for awhile and my wife & I went for lunch. Everyone we dealt with at Carbone couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating -- the service and ambience were first class. No attitude. Our waiter had a great sense of humor. But the food, at least the dishes we ordered -- an appetizer of assorted clams, a Caesar salad, Branzino and a side of broccoli as an entree -- were just not that great. Sorry, but true. We actually found the broccoli dish to be unpleasant, and barely ate it. And the restaurant is very expensive. Lunch was $200. In spite of all the pluses, for me it all comes down to the food, and as you know New York has no shortage of great restaurants."
