Looking for the latest in Italian in NY? Might want to try Caffe Falai, which should be re-opened in SoHo, (there was power failure earlier this month) by chef Iacopo Falai, owner of Falai and bakery Falai Panetteria. Be sure to be careful with your red sauce though, this entire joint is white on white on white, even the open-air kitchen.

Interesting menu items include buckwheat papardelle and branzino filets, or new takes on standby's -like fresh beets paired with fried mozzarella. Oh, and leave your black Amex at home, Caffe Falai's cash only. The vibe is casual, and they don't take reservations, so dinner is a better bet for a non-wait than brunch or lunch.
