An expensive secret not far from the UN, Grifone is a favorite diplomat hangout. The rich red decor goes hand in hand with the succulent, calorie-laden dishes, heavy on cheeses and sauces, but so finely seasoned that they stop just short of gluttonous. Pasta lovers will swoon at the spaghetti carbonara, with fresh pancetta and parmigiano cheese, and the pesto sauces that are ground and flecked with garlic right under your eyes by chefs working in the open kitchen. There are also tender veal, beef and chicken dishes, and lots of seafood plates.
