It was members’ night at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, a perfect opportunity to meet a friend in the area for dinner and a museum tour. I asked her to select an outstanding restaurant from her neighborhood. She brought me to the fabulous Antonucci Cafe, an Italian restaurant located at 171 East 81 Street between Lexington and Third. As you can see from the Rome and New York photos, the New York setting transports you instantly to Rome.

The chicken meatballs were delicious, and the rice pilaf accompaniment delightfully exceeded my expectations.

I WAS CAPTIVATED when I saw the chocolate banana cake with chocolate ice cream! It was decadently delicious and reigned as one of the top 5 desserts I’ve ever enjoyed.

The layers of ganache and caramelized bananas with a dollop of chocolate ice cream were a heavenly creation.

I highly recommend Antonucci Cafe if you find yourself on the Upper East Side (AKA Yorkville). It has grace, charm, warmth, and divine dining.
