Carbone, the most important Thompson Street Italian-American restaurant of early March 2013, has finally been reviewed on Yelp. Is the first review a shill? You be the judge:
Prepare for transport into the days of the Rat Pack at the latest from the owners of Torrisi and Parm ... CARBONE -- an overdue exploration of comfort Italian food in a place that delicately balances fur-clad models in stilettos, staff in Zac Posen-designed burgundy suits, art curated by Vito Schnabel, and beef carpaccio so beautifully prepared, you could spread it on the warm, perfect crunch-to-butter-ratio garlic bread.
Its a true testament to what dining looked like in the movies of the 60's and early 70's ... when you dressed to dine, with friends in suit & tie, over a table so full of wine glasses and food you can't see the stains of red sauce on the tablecloth.This could also be a prank from someone who misses Rocco Restaurant. Three reviews were also shuffled off to the "filtered" Yelp page.
Plan in advance ... bring the right crowd ... make friends with the right people, and you can score the best seat in the house -- the back brick room crescent table.
