Russo's New York Pizzeria

Dawn McGee
The burgeoning dining scene that followed Midtown's influx of housing includes this hip retro cafe. Punched up with orange, green and yellow tiles, it is softened with plush sofas and Italian lamps that go well with a coffee. Other beverages include chai and smoothies, not to mention a full bar. Sustenance is simple -- salads and sandwiches from the heart of Tuscany.
