Fodor's Expert Review All'onda

$$$ Greenwich Village Italian

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

While this stylish restaurant bills itself as serving "modern Venetian cuisine," it's more as if Japanese chefs quietly invaded Venice and begin updating the dishes. Chef Chris Jaeckle sneaks Asian elements into the otherwise Italian menu, emboldening the dishes to the tune of utter deliciousness. Truffle risotto has sake mash, crab-loaded garganelli has just the right touch of yuzu, and thick bucatini noodles are interlaced with fresh uni. There is, of course, more to the Japanese-accented Italian menu than just pasta: the juicy porchetta (laced with a seaweed salsa verde, naturally) and the tender short rib, paired with saffron risotto, are winning entrées. You'll want to say "grazie" or perhaps "arigato" to the chef on your way out.
