Nora's is a favorite among locals and famous chefs. Its big draws: down-home atmosphere, a stellar wine selection (with up to 60 bottles available for tasting through enomatic dispensers) and, of course, reliably tasty food. For lunch, try dishes such as baked ziti, grilled ling cod with lemon vinaigrette, or various types of bruschette. For dinner, opt for a pizza with artichokes and prosciutto or seafood such as swordfish braciole. Desert lovers can't miss the ricotta
sfingi, a light Sicilian doughnut made with lavender honey. A three-course tasting menu is available at night for $85 per person.
