THE GILDA AGE: For shoppers making their way down Fifth Avenue this season, a stop for lunch at Gilda's on 49th Street is a must.
Owned and run by six partners with years of restaurant experience between them, this new mid-town spot is filled with the fashionable from Saks Fifth Avenue across the street and nearby international boutiques.
Gilda's features Italian food and an unusual ambience. There are frescoes by Antonio Romano and Bijan Safavi, one of which is based on Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus." The cafe on the lower floor - decorated as a grotto - features piano music during cocktail hour and live jazz at night. A sweeping staircase heads upstairs, where painted cherubs and angels frolic among the clouds on the ceiling.
But it's Chef Roberto Ottini's food that really sends the diners soaring, with specialities such as risotto with shrimp and asparagus, pasta bowties with smoked salmon and grilled portobello mushrooms in wine sauce.
