Massoni is the restaurant inside the Arlo Hotel from the Dale Talde crew, and it's just a couple blocks from MSG. They serve Asian-Italian fusion - so things like calamari with a big kick, rice balls, and some tasty square Detroit-style pizzas. This place feels way more LES than NoMad, and we’re OK with that. Definitely hit it before your next Knicks or Rangers game.
