Ides of March
The former chef of the storied Rao’s, Carla Pellegrino is striking out on her own. Don’t wait to sign up for this dinner: judging from the popularity (read: cult-level following) of Pellegrino’s fabled Italian fare, a reservation at one of her two new hot spots is sure to prove equally elusive.

A nutrient-rich meal with extraordinary flavor is par for the course at the glamorous Michelin-starred Rouge Tomate, where chef Jeremy Bearman draws from his experience working under Joël Robuchon and Daniel Boulud to achieve a perfect balance of flavor, style, and nutrition.
