An Italian Specialty for Spring, Veal, for Takeout and Delivery


Everything from pizza to a long-simmered stracotto can satisfy the appetite for Italian specialties, and can be delivered from restaurants. I’m not sure I’d order a portion of spaghetti marinara to take away, since assembling it is no challenge, but there are other favorites that are more daunting. When was the last time you bought some veal? And pounded and breaded a rib chop or portion of boneless loin to flatten and crisp it for veal Parm or its more elite cousin, veal Milanese? Restaurants across the city can do it for you; just plan on gently reheating it in the oven before serving. And if the veal Milanese comes with a salad topping, request that it be packed separately. Here’s a sampler:

This elegant Upper East Side dining room offers excellent veal Milanese.

23 East 74th Street, 212-288-1004, caravaggioristorante.com.

Though the Major Food Group’s holdings include several casual places called Parm, they do not offer veal Parm, only chicken. For veal, you have to patronize their cheeky Greenwich Village throwback and dine at home, as you stream “The Godfather.”

This Hell’s Kitchen restaurant with a deep wine cellar offers cotoletta di vitello parmigiana instead of using the informal veal Parm tag; all the same.

90 Thompson Street (Spring Street), 212-625-1212, sancarlonyc.com.

It doesn’t get more Milanese than Sant Ambroeus, especially at the uptown flagship. And the cutelèta alla Milanese, rendered in regional spelling, is first-rate.
