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.

"It's all about expectations - ordered some of the staple dishes (mentioned in yelp) and wasn't overwhelmed.
Food was good, but not as impressive as others have made it out to be. Had baked clams, spicy rigatoni vodka, oxtail cavatelli, lobster fra diavolo. All were tasty but not amazing, and not really worth the price. I don't mind paying extra for really exceptional food and had known the price of the item in Carbone before going in - but had still hoped it would be pretty exceptional and not just good.
