Il Principe is the newest restaurant from Sean Largotta, the restauranteur behind Crown and The Lion – in other words, it’s one of the latest “see and be seen” spots in the city. Open only a few weeks, it’s already attracting a great crowd, thanks to the team behind it, paired with chic decor and a fantastic menu.
A good place for outdoor seating, thanks to its relatively quiet location, it’s also fantastic for big groups, business meetings, brunch, romantic dates, small bites, celebrity sightings, breakfast, lunch and spotting beautiful people. More details below:
Good For Groups: Though it’s not a huge restaurant, the back area – and private area in the far back – are set up to accommodate bigger parties – just make sure you call ahead. One caveat – though the small plates and wine list are impressive, they’re decidedly not on the cheap side, which is something to keep in mind when considering varied budgets.
Good For Business Meetings: It’s open for meals throughout the day and has a quiet, cool, higher-end atmosphere. Plus, being able to expense a dinner makes paying for the experience a lot less painful.
Good For Celebrity Sightings: The owner’s notable friends tend to follow him from opening to opening, meaning big names will most likely make regular appearances.
