Scalini Fedeli

Scalini Fedeli means steps of faith, and in this case, it’s a leap,” William Grimes declared upon the opening of this Tribeca temple of French-influenced fine-Italian dining, in 1999. Grimes, a writer I’ve always admired, continued with a flare that I’d be unlikely to match (though he was operating with the distinct advantage of having eaten at the place, a pleasure I’ve yet to experience). “The original Scalini Fedeli is one of New Jersey’s most highly regarded and popular dining spots, a perennial winner in reader surveys,” he added. “Michael Cetrulo, its chef and owner, has decided to test that reputation on a more ambitious circuit. It’s a doubly audacious move, because, of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, he had to walk into the former Bouley, a four-star dazzler.” By all reported measures, Cetrulo has long passed the test. (165 Duane St. 212-528-0400.)
