The most recent entry rom Union Square Hospitality Group, Maialino is DannyMeyer’s take on the Roman trattoria. Located in the prototypically-posh Gra-mercy Park, Maialino might be expected to all into a similar vein o exuber-ance. Somehow, it goes in the other direction, oering an ambiance that skirtsthe boundaries between the classy and the homely. Italian or “little pig” Ma-ialino is a restaurant built on swine and urnished with the resh and seasonalproducts o the Greenmarket. Open throughout the day, and equipped withit’s own bar, Maialino is dynamic, robust, and comorting. Just like home.

Butwhere the San Domenicowas stately, SD26 is modern. This is no more evidenced, perhaps, than by therestaurant’s trendy and acronomized name. SD26 is a locale or a younger andmore hip crowd, a group more likely to eschew ormality or comort. I youlike a bit o unconventionality with your meal, SD26 is or you.

Just about no one bornduring the Middle Agesis alive now to relaythe details o the post-Roman Empire period.Despite that, Ken Fried-man and che AprilBloomeld have createdThe Breslin, a restaurantso unabashedly medievalthat one might expectCharlemagne himsel to come stomping in. The Breslin is based on the endur-ing confation o alcohol and ood, the ormer o which otentimes accompa-nies pickles and the later o which is invariably soaked in at or excessivelysugared. Thunderous and packed, The Breslin takes the notion o the comortood and deep-ries it. Speaking o deep-ried, The Breslin oers a deep-riedpeanut butter and jelly sandwich, which likely shouldn’t be passed up. Otheroptions include bone marrow soup, headcheese, and lamb burgers.
