Nick and Toni's, which opened in 1988, has become almost as celebrated as the celebrities who frequent it. Aware that reservations can be very hard to get, Nick and Toni's has added four high-top bar tables for walk-ins. The menu changes seasonally, making use of its own garden produce and dairy from local farms. Wood-roasted whole fish is among the popular staples and tartufo has been a classic dessert for over a decade. As for libations, there are 15 wines by the glass and over 50 bottles for $50 or less, although it has rare finds for aficionados. Cocktails use fresh-squeezed juices, infused liquors, and ice orbs, and don't forget the grappa. The real story about Nick and Toni's, as told by The New York Times a year ago, is Bonnie Munshin, the maitre d', who runs the show that everyone tries to get in on.
