Sirio Maccioni — he masterminded Le Cirque and helped launch the career of Daniel Boulud.

So when he opened Sirio this month — a “La Dolce Vita”-inspired trattoria of intimate low ceilings and cucina Italiana at the Pierre — it was given you should check it out.

It’s also a given you should know the menu beforehand.

Sirio serves three piazzas (that’s squares) a day by exec chef Filippo Gozzoli, who earned two Michelin stars in Verona. Each has its own greatest hits. To wit:

Breakfast/Brunch: Your go-to here is the blood orange bellini, which will complement your forkfuls of fried eggs with spicy tomato coulis and whipped avocado.

Lunch: You couldn’t pick a better setting than The Pierre to entertain clients. Hammer out your deals over plates of beef carpaccio with quail egg and black truffle or ravioli al cacio e pepe.

Dinner: With a long, gleaming bar and polished wood tabletops, Sirio’s perfect for romantic evenings spent tucking into braised veal cheeks or pumpkin risotto. Pair that with a 250-deep wine list including private label vintages bottled exclusively for Sirio in Tuscany, as well as signature cocktails like the “Grumpy Conquistador,” a spicy blend of jalapeño tequila and pomegranate.

You’ve now masterminded date night.
