Rubirosa Ristorante, 235 Mulberry Street, Little Italy, NYC
I must confess we were headed somewhere else for lunch only to find they were closed on Mondays. We walked across the street and over a bit to find one of those happy accidents I love so much when exploring a city that's new to me. The Italian food at Rubirosa was some of the best I've had, not to mention the menu of Italian-inspired craft cocktails. Highly recommended.
