Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi, and Jeff Zalaznick's much-anticipated Italian-American restaurant finally opens in Greenwich Village tomorrow. With Godfather-esque tile floors, servers who want you to have it your way, and Zac Posen vintage-style vests and tuxedos, Carbone will transport diners straight from Thompson Street's chess district to 1958 New York. The food follows the theme: Carbone's menu includes classic dishes like linguine with clams, lobster fra diavolo, Caesar salad, and carrot cake. This spot will be distinctly different from Torrisi and Parm — but expect equally superlative menu choices. Click ahead to see more of the food, as well as shots of the bellissima interior.
Carbone, 181 Thompson St., nr. Bleecker St.; 212-254-3000
