It was thrilling to dine with Marco Losavio, Director of Italy's renowned, online jazz magazine, JazzItalia.net, at Tony May's San Domenico NY. Marco has been translating many of my New York jazz reviews, including those of Italian jazz artists, into Italian, and publishing them in two languages on JazzItalia.net for several years. We finally had an opportunity to meet in New York, and, prior to the late artist set at Dizzy's Club, Coca-Cola, we dined across Columbus Circle at San Domenico NY.

We shared two appetizers, crunchy polenta cannoli with whipped salt-cod and capers from Pantelleria, and a pasta, homemade tagliolini with clams and zucchini on a bean purée. For entrées, Marco chose Sicilian red prawns with beans from Controne scented with rosemary. I chose fillet of Chilean sea bass in a light tomato-zucchini herbed broth with Sardinian couscous. As one can see, San Domenico NY purchases authentic Italian delicacies and herbs and also flies in fresh fish from the far reaches of the Italian and South American seas.

Our wines were chosen by Renato, San Domenico's infamous Bartender, and Marco, on jet lag, completed the dinner with espresso, while I ordered the frothy cappuccino. We even got to say "Buon Viaggio" to Vincenzo, on the eve of his new air pilot job in Hawaii. San Domenico NY is the destination restaurant for fine dining at a table or at the bar, before or after Jazz at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center opera or ballets, or Broadway shows. It's especially the destination restaurant for business or social dining across from Central Park. Ask for Marisa May or Stefano, and tell them you saw them on RobertaOnTheArts.com.
