There is a new Dinnertable in town.

New York does Italian food well. We've got the neighborhood, the people, the restaurants and the awards to prove it. So what happens when a husband and wife duo comes into Alphabet City and decide to disrupt a faithful cult following of Italian food lovers? Magic. The Dinnertable is my new favorite Italian spot in the city because I want more inventive ways to eat the classic dishes without sacrificing the comfort that traditional Italian food brings. Located on Avenue A, inside of the Garret East, past the curtains you will find a doorway hidden by a curtain with a bell like switch which says, "Push for food". Push it even if you don't have reservations because they are difficult to make and prepare to wait for 30 mins to an hour for a table of two. The wait is worth it not only for the food you will devour in a few minutes but also because the Garret East is an awesome bar with good drinks, friendly staff and lots of seats. Be patient and get ready for an amazing meal.
