Finding a good, calm place to eat in Herald Square is always a headache, but there’s a new restaurant tucked away on the sixth floor of Macy’s to save the day. You don’t even have to enter through the crowded store; there’s an express elevator at the 35th Street and Broadway entrance that allows for direct access. Jonathan Benno, executive chef of Lincoln, oversaw menu development for the Neapolitan trattoria. Dishes include pizza made with imported Caputo flour (and cooked in a wood-burning oven), housemade pastas, a bellini bar, and Italian soda cocktails. The gelato comes from Florentine gelateria Vivoli, and this is its first-ever location outside of Italy. Check out the menus and the food, ahead.
