Ristorante Insieme

In midtown Manhattan, near the Theater Disctrict, Insieme is the restaurant of the Hotel Michelangelo, a lovely hotel where all the smart Italians stay. The chef is Marco Canora and last June, Frank Bruni gave him 2 stars. Great performance, since the restaurant had recently opened. We went to Insieme a couple of nights ago and the restaurant is still very good. We had several tasting size portions of pasta (I think Marco has a real talent with pasta)  and pork loin, which was beautifully cooked. The bollito misto, instead, was not special and you could not make your own selection. The decor of the room could be improved, but the food is good. Overall definetely worth a try.
