If you’re on the prowl for a great Italian meal with your family–but it happens to be prime dinner hour–double your chances for a table without a long wait with a visit to Buona Sera at the Jam. This buzzing Chelsea restaurant has maximized every inch of dining space by building two layers of booths, creatively overlapping each other throughout the room. Either tuck into a cozy, cave-style lower booth, or climb a ladder to an upper booth, where your treehouse fantasies can come to life. While the kids get comfortable in their little fortress, you can select some delectable family-style fare, everything from pizza to grilled cod to impressive plates of pasta. Before long, watch as your skillful server gracefully ascends the ladder to your booth with a massive tray of food, an impressive feat requiring equal measures of balance and confidence. Linger over your noodles as you take in the lively scene. As you depart this memorable family dinner, you may have to remind the kids not to get any bright ideas about starting their own trattoria in their bunk bed.
