Just off the Great White Way, is a perfect option for pre-theater dining

Nestled between the theater and garment districts, Arno Ristorante offers Northern Italian cuisine in a traditional, upscale setting for over 20 years. Just steps from Madison Square Garden and Broadway theaters, you  can enjoy a delicious meal before or after the event.Or savor lighter fare at lunch time and mingle with business associates at the popular bar after work.

The menu offers classic Italian offerings including Crostini di Mozzarella and Risotto ai Frutti de Mare. The flexible dining space and great location also make this a popular spot for private parties. Arno Ristorante’s decor features floor to ceiling windows, hung with Austrian shades that usher you into the comfortable bar/lounge area, where alabaster globe-lights cast a warm glow. The main dining room is more formal and separated by etched glass panels. Brass chandeliers with European-style shades hang from the ceiling and mirrored walls reflect the color scheme of burgundy and beige.

Arnos doesn’t go for culinary surprises, but pampers its happy customers with lightened interpretations of traditional Italian fare like assorted hot or cold antipasto, fresh shrimp cocktail or baked clams for starters. Then, terrific pasta, like angel hair with fresh garden vegetables or tortellini with a heavenly rich meat sauce. Meat lovers will adore the tender, quality steak, huge succulent veal chop or breaded veal chop parmigiana in a fragrant tomato sauce with melted cheese. Fish lovers need look no further than  the whole fish of the day, prepared mediterranean style or a luscious red snapper, sautéed with clams, shrimp, garlic, fresh tomato and white wine.Service is a real plus: smooth, dedicated and nurturing. The wine selection offers some good buys in Super Tuscans, as well as a full range of top-of-the-line Italian and international wines. There is also a terrific selection of wines by the glass, served in beautiful condition.

The dessert trolley offers enough temptations to make you forget you just started your diet.  Arno Ristorante is one of the last classic luxury Italian restaurants in New York that gets it right and is always a rewarding experience.
