I recently ate at SD26, it was a great pleasure to enjoy contemporary Italian cuisine in a contemporary NYC location. The food, ambiance, service and price value all exceeded my expectations and provided me a dining experience that ranks among my most favorite.
First the food… As you can tell by the photos, the food was too tempting to wait for the photo to be taken.
The ambiance is contemporary and focused on the food and beverage of Italy. A significant portion of their wine list is available by the glass with selections you cannot find in many other places (some are affordable others are in the luxurious price range). If you go, take a look at the wine wall when you enter the lounge area for their by the glass selections.
Next you will be drawn to the food as the aromas of the open kitchen seep through the dining room. Everything a foodie wants!
