    Great Restaurant

    Had dinner at Maialino on 12/26/09. We had a fabulous experience. Food great. Service wonderful. Atmosphere delightful. Nothing less than perfect from Danny Meyer. Will go again if I can get a reservation.

    gramercy park has a restaurant

    my wife & i dined at maialino last night. we started with a bottle of casavecchia @ $62. it was perfect. for our pasta dishes we ordered the cacia e pepe & a ravioli with egg yolk. both were delicious. we followed them with the maialino for two, sided with brussel sprouts & chestnuts which could not have been better. tack on the pine nut tart & the apple cake & we were good to go. did i mention the beautiful view of the park? the service was typical danny meyer.

    I'd wait till things smooth out

    So Danny Meyer sensed New York doesn't have enough Italian restaurants. What's next for him, a tapas bar? The interior is inoffensive, but it won't win any awards. I'm not sure whether a Roman would feel at home here. The bathroom area is downright gloomy. Haven't we moved past communal washrooms? The bar stools, with its not-quite seat backs, are uncomfortable if your ass is bigger than 12-year old's. Sound level is more than lively when the room is full. Staff is friendly, but can get inattentive when they get slammed. Staff also is not entirely well versed with the items on the menu. Granted the restaurant has been open only for one week, but one expects better from a Meyer restaurant. Clientele comprised mainly of couples of a certain age and local Louis Vuitton-toting yuppies holding their wine glasses by their bowls. The selections of wines by the glass were good. The menu sources classic Roman cuisine. All the usual Roman suspects are there: Stracciatella Romana, Trippa Alla Trasteverina, Bucatini All'amatriciana, Coda Alla Vaccinara, all things al forno. I learned the hard way that the bar does not offer a full menu - only a bar menu. Why? Dunno, but the bar food is not nearly as compelling as the full menu. The Frito Misto and the Pollo Alla Diavola both were standouts. The eggplant parmigiano was over seasoned. The flavor of the eggplant was hidden beneath the red sauce. At $18, I'll take a local pizza joint's offering. The Carpaccio Di Polpo, an unappealing dish composed of cold boiled purple potatoes and cold braised octopus slices, was returned to the kitchen. The potatoes were undercooked. I was promised a new order, which never arrived. The Torta Della Nonna, actually a Tuscan dessert, was good. The Affogato, not so much.

    First look

    Monday eve 6:45 and we were seated without a reservation! Service is well meaning and lots of help but sort of disorganized. We had a martini-only Plymouth gin and a short not too strong drink. Italian beer and fair wine list . Quartinos are a great value. We had prosciutto de Quercia which was very nice and a reaonable size portion. Shared spaghetti with vongole. Initial smellwas fishy but end up being terrific. He had chicken -I had swordfish both of which were quite good and ample. Waiter should have suggested a contorni. No dessert but good espresso and americano. Excellent bread basket. The maialino forno looked and smelled wonderful! We will have it next time! Good vibes and a great addition to the NYC eating scene. The bar was jammed.
