The best summer party that doesn't take place on the beach is Sapore di Sale, the summer aperitivo at Da Mikele by Luzzo's. Sapore di Sale, meaning a taste of salt, is a classic Italian tune, perfect for a party.
You may think you know NYC inside and out...but you're wrong. Skip the high-end haunts that are sure to be overcrowded and impossible to get into without a reservation. Instead, head to one of these lesser known, but equally (or even more) tasty joints. These places are sure to satisfy your craving and won't rob you of that hard-earned cash.
La Nacional: Although this place may look a little dumpy on the outside, it's what's on your plate that really matters here. The tapas here are the most authentic I've tasted since living in Spain (no joke), and they even carry the elusive tinto de verano ($6). Spaniards - you know what I'm talking about (red wine w/ sparkling lemonade for those who don't). Order up a bunch of small plates or splurge on paella...either way, you'll go home happy.
For one week only, Luzzo's will be serving up their limited edition 7 Sins Pizza (just in time for V-Day)! Master pizzaiolo Michele Luliano is celebrating the restaurant group's 7th Anniversary with this very special pizza. The pizza is inspired by the seven deadly sins, with seven toppings, served on an unusual crust shape called battilocchio (which means to blink).
