Beckoning business titans day and night, this corner restaurant is a destination for its big, bright dining room with well-spaced tables. Wall-to-wall windows overlook two quintessential TriBeCa streets, while exposed brick, moody artwork and a spectacular bar smack in the center of the room complete the refined vibe. Gigantone, large tubular pasta loaded with braised short rib Bolognese beneath a dollop of fresh sheep's milk ricotta, makes a rich start to any meal. The decadence continues with seared scallops over creamy carrot risotto, topped with a truffled-Madeira vinaigrette and brought over the top with a few fragrant shavings of black truffle. Desserts are as classic as the space; try the banana tart with malted chocolate and pecan ice cream.
