Erminia, opened in 1982, is New York City’s most romantic restaurant. Obtaining some of the Zagat Survey’s most highly rated scores for food, service and décor each year, the Roman influenced Italian food is second to none on the Upper East Side. Forbes Magazine twice selected Erminia as its number one Top Pick for food. Most diners agree that the original concoctions prepared here will win the hearts of all those who come to experience the fare. The Swiss Alps cabin-like atmosphere accents the rustic feel at Erminia.

"We have been wanting to go to Erminia for a long time but couldn't get a reservation, but last night we were able to get a table. It was wonderful! The ambiance is warm and delightful. The food was delicious. Italian restaurants abound in the UES but this one sets itself apart, because the food was so well prepared from homemade pasta to fish that was cooked perfectly, and not swimming in olive oil. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their dinner. The service was attentive. We will definitely try again for another reservation."

L'Apicio is located at 13 E. 1st Street (between Bowery and 2nd Avenue). The Italian-inspired restaurant gets its name from the 18th century Italian cookbook, and brings Executive Chef Gabe Thompson's cravable modern Italian food to the East Village. L'Apicio offers a deep cocktail and wine program created by Beverage Director Joe Campanale, while Executive Pastry Chef Katherine Thompson oversees the pastry program. L'Apicio is open for dinner seven days a week and brunch on the weekends, featuring lounge and bar areas and outdoor seating, in addition to the main and private dining rooms.

"A big surprise! We hadn't heard of L'Apicio , I picked it from Zagats because we were in the neighborhood. It was delicious! The citrus salad was superb, so was my branzino and my husband loved his polenta. The ambience was great, very nicely decorated, modern but manages to be warm and inviting. The service was also excellent. The price was reasonable. We will definitely go back!"
