Always crowded and no reservations—people might ask themselves what all the hype is all about. Upon entering the building, it becomes clear why this place is packed. Bottega Louie has been attracting the crowds eager to dine on their bevy of American-Italian fare since 2008. The stark, open interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows lend to the space’s cool vibe. Discerning diners know to pay a visit to the gourmet market and patisserie to savor the delicate French macaroons.
