Dining in New York City nowadays, it may be difficult to find a quiet, cozy, intimate place to eat. So many dining establishments are jamming a lot of tables (or stools or benches) into a small area, and those that don’t are often very pricey. An exception is Il Tinello in Manhattan. This is the sort of traditional place where suit-wearing waiters push around appetizer and dessert trays. Meals often start with martinis and proceed with plenty of wine, and the entrees are primarily red sauce Italian classics.
- A baby boomer who was out of shape has recently contacted Ask Eater in order to find out where they can enjoy a cozy and intimate place to dine.
- The staff at Ask Eaters agreed that when it comes to New York City, most restaurants tend to be small venues that are overpopulated.
- There is a traditional Italian restaurant called Il Tinello, which offers a simplistic atmosphere that is much more quieter than most NYC eateries.
“Simple dishes like spaghetti al pomodoro, chicken scarpariello, and veal parmesan — red sauce classics essential to New York City — are all made to feel more fancy in these environs.”
