If the goal of every trip you go on is to find the most interesting restaurant you can, get a reservation at DaiLo. This Cantonese-French spot in Little Italy serves a $65 chef’s choice tasting menu of things like fried watermelon, 90-day aged beef carpaccio, and truffle fried rice with XO sauce. From the food to the hand-painted walls, this place has a lot of little touches that will impress whoever you bring enough to forget that you packed at the last minute and brought four pairs of shoes and only one pair of socks. They also serve everything a la carte and, if you want to make a night of it, there’s a lounge upstairs, LoPan, which serves more dim sum snacks and great cocktails.
