Best Italian Restaurants in the U.S.

Marea, New York City

When it comes to the cred of chef Michael White, Mario Batali has spoken: “He definitely spent more time in Italy than I did, he married a real Italian and probably makes love like an Italian too, definitely better than me.” So seek out a coveted reservation for White’s flagship—this swanky seafood restaurant just off Central Park West—and then do your meal right: lardo-draped uni with sea salt; Nova Scotia lobster with burrata, eggplant, and basil; and the fusilli with red wine–braised octopus and bone marrow.
