The eclectic two-story 208 takes the industrial steel and warm woods of a hip downtown New York loft space and gives it a Hong Kong twist—blue and white ceramic tile with Chinese illustrations. The bar downstairs is fun and bustling, while there’s a quieter dining room above, both with some alfresco seating overlooking busy Hollywood Road. Choose from a packed menu of pasta, meat dishes, salads, cured meats, and antipasti. If you want pizza, this is the place: The custom-designed Napoletana pizza oven was shipped over from Italy. A dozen very appealing pies include the Gamberi, with mozzarella, prawns, chili, and salsa verde, and the Tuscan, topped with goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, crispy bacon, and garlic.
