Just two blocks west at SD26, overlooking Madison Square Park, you'll find some of the city's best modern Italian cuisine. Not surprisingly, the eatery is the incarnation of San Domenico, one of New York's best-loved restaurants. Here, celebrated restaurateur Tony May and daughter Marisa serve up course after course of wonderfully authentic cuisine, as well as an extensive wine list presented on an iPad -- the better to navigate the nearly 1,000 options in the well-stocked cellar. Luckily, there's an app for that. SD26 offers a prix fixe two-course lunch or the daily "Quadrifoglio" lunch — a lighter, single course of four dishes. Dinner is à la carte. And, if you don't feel like going out, SD26 delivers right to the front door of our affordable NoMad neighborhood hotel.

Address: 19 East 26th Street
