A truly innovative dining concept, Obikà is a restaurant with a menu based entirely on the Mozzarella di Bufala Campana DOP, or mozzarella crafted in the Campania region of Italy. Each dish at Obikà is prepared with mostly fresh, artisanal ingredients and traditional Italian methods. Diners can sample the restaurant’s fresh mozzarella with one of its tasting plates or choose a more traditional dish, such as handmade spinach and ricotta ravioli. The chain’s New York City location opened in 2008 near the IBM Building, and is the first one designed as a free-standing kiosk.

Insider Tip:

Regulars warn that the sandwiches are a bit on the small side. Opt instead for a tasting plate, which also includes prosciutto, grilled seasonal vegetables, and three pesti.
