København V, 1712
Despite the long lines outside this meatpacking district restaurant, Mother is worth the wait. Headed by a Roman chef, this eatery dishes out delicious Italian comfort foods like sourdough pizza, great antipasti, proper Carbonara -- with no cream -- and delicious wine. It’s also a pretty popular spot for groups, especially the Friday night, after work crowd. A micro-list of high-quality Italian wine is also available.
