Santina is located in a former garage underneath the Highline in the Meatpacking district. If this doesn’t sound too stylish it’s because we didn’t mention the restaurant was designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano. But this is not a pretentious place; it’s a comfortable, feel-good restaurant with food inspired by coastal Italian dishes and the rich heritage of the neighborhood. You can drop in at any time without a reservation, but don’t forget to order one of their cocktails.
