The last big post-pandemic re-opening we expect to see in the city happened last Friday. Lazia, the stellar Italian spot in Crossroads Hotel, is back with a godfather’s vengeance.
With travel still stunted, hotel restaurants have been slow to return. Lazia, which retooled its menu and dining room during the break, took a little longer than others.
A media preview meal on Thursday night showed it was worth the wait. The new cocktail menu makes great use of amaro and the wood-fired oven in the lobby produces some great pizzas. They’re also doing tableside mozzarella.
Here are some photos from the event.
