Another Mario Batali restaurant - but admittedly, he has never cooked here. This was my second time here; and while I think I was more impressed the first time I was here (the sea urchin and crab pasta is to die for!); the second time was still a lovely experience. The service, decor and food (like all of Mario Batali's restaurants) are wonderful, elegant and warm. The sommelier recommended a fabulous wine (from Umbria region) that was reminiscent of a juicy syrah. I wish I could remember the name... We tried the crudo sampler - very fresh, sweet, delectable bites of seafood at its best. The scallop was particularly good. I also had the black squid ink past - while I thought the texture of the pasta was wonderful, the sauce was just a tad too salty for me - but admittedly I have a very sensitive palate for salt. Despite that, I would still recommend this place for anyone who loves seafood.
