The best things are hidden in plain sight. While Cipriani is a world-renowned restaurant, its midtown location Le Specialità is its lesser know Murray Hill gem. Le Specialità is located just a cross the street from Grand Central Station’s 42nd street exit (parallel to Baked By Melissa). Trust us, if you’re not looking for it, it’s definitely easy to miss.
This place is a local favorite for lunch and very with good reason. The menu is new daily (bit.ly/ciprianimenu) and competitively priced with a small meal for $10 and a large for $13. With options like Filet Mignon with Roasted Vegetables, Risotto Alla Parmigiana, or Flank Steak in Melange Sauce there are no bad choices. Everything including the pastries are made fresh daily. And for only $3 don’t forget to try their signature tiramisu also! We recommend an early lunch before 1pm because once their out of an menu item, it’s done for the day.
