Portofino - Italy
From the Wall Street Journal (2001)
Diehard New Yorkers will be mad we have given away this secret spot. Portofino Restaurant is one of several waterfront restaurants on tiny City Island, a historic little town first settled in the 17th century that’s adjacent to the city’s Orchard Beach. Manhattanites make the quick drive across the City Island bridge to the sleepy hamlet to get a taste of a New England seaside village, and of seafood, without ever technically leaving the city. Portofino's dinner entrees range from $14.95 to $45.95. Open daily for lunch and dinner.
