With reservations still improbably difficult to nail down, skip the hassle and head to Babbo's new lunch service for grilled quail covered in lardo, black spaghetti with fennel/ jalapeno/ bottarga, and Grigliata Mista sporting beef tongue, lamb chop, and sweetbread, something you better be making to knock off work and eat at Babbo.

Mario Batali’s flagship restaurant is a charming former carriage house in the West Village serving high-end Italian fare with an elevated, chef-inspired twist on classic dishes. The pasta here is certainly worth the hype, like the pillowy potato gnocchi, cuddled in shreds of tender oxtail that’s been sautéed in a robust red wine and tomato-based ragu.
