The models may be dieting during New York Fashion Week but not everyone else is and Armani Ristorante has rolled out a new bar menu to entice those looking for a quick delicious nibble. Prices range from $8 (which gets you some house made ice cream or sorbet) to $28 for Misto alla Griglia-- grilled lamb chop, beef filet, veal filet, Cornish hen and selected vegetables in extra virgin olive oil. More adventurous palates might opt for Polpettine di Cinghiale alla Cacciatora-- wild boar "meatballs" , vegetable-mushroom sauce served with baby arugula and radicchio ($22) but there is also a vegetarian lasanga for those of a less carnivorous nature.
The restaurant continues to offer an international selection of fine wines by the bottle and by the glass, as well as an innovative array of cocktails including Il Diavolo made with tequila reposado, cassis, splash of lemon juice and topped with ginger ale as well as the Armani Martini, a blend of fresh orange juice, white rum, triple sec served with an orange slice. Armani / Ristorante 5th Avenue is open for lunch and dinner daily until 11 p.m. Monday - Saturday and until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
