Chef Michael Anthony reviews Tonnarelli cacio e pepe at Maialino
$$$ | Italian
Gramercy Park
"Danny Meyer's Italian restaurant right above Gramercy Park offers this simple pasta dish called tonnarelli cacio e pepe. It's always well seasoned and always made with love."
Chef Alfred Portale reviews Roast suckling pig at Maialino
$$$ | Italian
Gramercy Park
"From this Roman-style trattoria, one of Danny Meyer's newer restaurants, comes a unbeatable suckling pig. Call ahead to the restaurant to let them know you want it and make sure that they haven't sold out."
Chef Missy Robbins reviews Cacio e Pepe eggs at Maialino
$$$ | Italian
Gramercy Park
"I love going here for Sunday brunch. I sit at the bar, read the paper, and have these soft scrambled eggs loaded with Pecorino and black pepper. It's a take on the classic pasta dish when you just don't want the carbs."
Chef Michael Anthony reviews Pollo alla diavola at Maialino
$$$ | Italian
Gramercy Park
"Nick Anderer got this recipe from his mom. The braised meat with skin still intact is smothered with the sauce and nestled in soft polenta. This is luxury dining with inexpensive ingredients. Not many people can convey love and insight through cooking like Nick can."
