I enjoyed a meal at Cellini, one block away and picked up a card for Fiorini. They are both Arpaia family owned.
Pleasant and professional service.
We split an insalata Bianca, crisp and tasty, although I remember the same salad at Due slightly more favorably.
We shared a bottle of terre de tufi, a Tuscan white, as they were out of Greco de tufi, a Calabrian white, for the same price? The wine list is not online, but I'm sure they were doing us a favor.
I had a special veal " a la martini" scallopini encrusted with parmesan and a thyme enfused red wine reduc sauce. Delicious. My companion had veal Milanese, which was also ordered at Cellini. The waiter asked if Fiorini's version was better. " Delicious , but it would be hard to say 'better '" was the reply.
As we settled the bill, they presented us with small portions of a lemon liqueur . Just the right touch.
With tax, it came to $128, before tip, in line with what good Manhattan midtown restaurants charge.
Unusually, we sat near windows that looked out at the street. No sounds intruded, and the street theater was interesting. One might like to not have such distraction; ask for an interior table.
