Restaurant Graziella serves classic, elegant Milanese cuisine in an atmosphere that is equally so. The cream, coffee and mocha palette of the decor creates a soothing space for Type A personalities to (breathe and) enjoy the popular $25 prix fixe power lunches (a starter plus a main) – or a longer lingering dinner when negotiating a deal.

Chichi regulars appreciate the grown-up setting and understand that both discreet service and a refined menu come at a price. Plus you don’t want to appear like a penny-pincher in front of people that are most-likely judging your choice in venue.

Graziella's menu changes with the seasons, but you really can't go wrong with the ricotta and Grana Padano gnocchi, duck confit ravioli, or the osso buco served with risotto milanese. The comprehensive wine list is conveniently listed in order by price, with interesting options by the glass.

Finally, nonstop business folk will want to know that the restaurant also offers four private rooms that accommodate 10 to 80 people for all your working-lunch needs. They also have a projection screen that’s yours for the asking and complimentary Wi-Fi connection.
