If you’ve got the guts to name a restaurant after yourself, you’d better be a country-music sensation, a Bennigan or Le Cirque’s Sirio Maccioni.
Regarding the latter, you’ve now got Sirio
. It’s a low-slung hall of mod-’60s sexiness and serious Italian fare. It’s taking reservations right now and opening November 1 at the Pierre. And this is how you’ll make it sing...
Dinner for two. Or, if you’re feeling ambitious (and potent), three.
You’ve basically stepped into Mastroianni-era Italy
here. Dim lighting, horizontal lines, banquettes with white leather piping, and mushroom risotto and lamb shank with artichokes. We presume that’s what he ate.
