Talk about moving up in the world, one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants has moved from its cramped Second Ave locale of 33 years to the most elegant new setting in an old mansion at 24 East 81st St.  (Formerly the Crown Restaurant and, before that, The Bruno Jamais Club.) Giuseppe Bruno, whose brothers operate San Pietro and Caravaggio, has brought the same sophisticated Italian menu and top service to a spacious dining room looking out on a garden.  You can’t beat the wine list (but check the prices).

Sistina is located at 24 East 81st Street, at the intersection of Madison and 81st.

  1. Maybe they will kill the ghost that haunts that space. I hated both the prior restaurants
