This is the kind of place where very senior tech execs might go, not because they want to be seen, but because it’s delicious and comfortable and dimly-lit enough that maybe people won’t notice that the CEOs of two massive internet companies are drinking together. Our go-tos at the dark, clubby (as in Harvard Club, not Vegas club) standby include the tagliatelle and chicken Milanese, and always the flourless chocolate cake if it’s on the menu. Garibaldi’s is a place you can take your parents or grandparents - or self, if you just want to eat very good food and drink very stiff drinks. It’s not cheap, but not obscenely expensive, either.
