City Pulse

By Matt Dorville

A day of shopping can really build up an appetite, which is likely to be the reason behind the newly opened Armani Ristorante in the Armani Fifth Avenue store. The space, located on the third floor of the Armani store, does an impressive job in creating a nice atmosphere with cool lighting and a beautiful view of Fifth Avenue. The modern Italian menu, featuring Sole served over an eggplant puree, Feuillette of pecorino pears, Zucchini flan, Gnocchi with chanterelles and Panna cotta for dessert, lives up to the Armani name.

The newly opened space is now serving a Power Lunch special for only 28 dollars to help draw in the Midtown crowd. The Power Lunch includes an appetizer, entrée, dessert and coffee all created by Michelin-starred chef Lorenzo Viani, raising the culinary bar to new heights.

With all the sales going on recently, a nicely prepared power lunch and a bit of impulse shopping might take the recessionary blues away without entirely emptying your wallet.
