Fiamma

Mario Batali better watch out: Fiamma could be the best haute Italian restaurant this side of The Boot, with a facelift in 2007 and now helmed by award-winning chef-partner Fabio Trabocchi—ex of the lavishly praised Maestro in Washington, D.C. Bathed in a soft golden light, the big handsome room offers a timelessly elegant backdrop for Trabocchi's tantalizing layerings of flavors and garnishes. For example, the spicy seafood stew appetizer has fabulous depth and a cloud of polenta foam; sweetbreads come garlanded by delicate salad greens decorated with microscopic batons of porcini. And only a true Italian can deliver pastas as gorgeous as the pumpkin agnolotti set on a winy brasato (braised beef) sauce, or the wickedly indulgent sauce-less lasagna perfumed with Madeira from Trabocchi's own Le Marche region. The tab is just as baroque, but you'll be too blissed out to notice.

Tip: Let star sommelier Ania Zaweija take charge of your wine pairings.
