me and my friends did not know that armani ristorante existed, we're tourists. we saw the place and decided to try it even if we know it'll be pricey, but it's armani and we want to see it. everything was going well til the security told us not take take pictures....anywhere inside. huh!? just because of that silly rule, we're not going back....it's nyc you guys...tourists are in and out of new york. the restaurant is not even all that! its nyc and there's more restaurants out there who's willing to cater to tourists who's willing to spend their money on a friendlier atmospehere.....sorry armani!

While the food we tried was by and large excellent, I have to say that for the prices you don't get much. If you don't want to leave hungry, be prepared to drop a good chunk of change. Antipasti were glorified amuses, which considering that some of them were over $20 (for an antipasti!?) seemd a bit ridiculous. Primi, slightly larger, and Secondi were large-than-average for Appetizers, but small for Entrees. Considering that most of them broke the $30 and even $40 barrier, one felt a bit cheated. And while the food was good, and exquisitely prepared, I didn't really detect much soul in there. It was all fairly by-the-numbers luxury food. Make a classic dish, throw some truffles or foie gras on it. For great modern Italian, there are any number of better locations in this city, both price-wise and food-wise - Babbo and Falai come to mind as better options, thouhg getting a seat at Babbo is near-impossible, I suppose. The atmosphere as well - very sterile. This would be a good place to take your grandparents, they'd be very impressed. Should appeal to the "ladies who lunch" sort of people who shop at the Armani boutique, I suppose. Serious foodies can skip this one. Think of it like Armani's menswear - exquisitely constructed, but nothing you haven't seen before.

I thought I'd take a big chance on dining at the new Armani Superstore on 5th Ave. A fashion designer turned Restauranteur? Id expect some fashion cliche' courses that looked good but lacked real substance. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was elegantly prepared with imaginative combinations. Don't take the elevator, walk up the remarkable winding staircase. Bravo Giorgio!
