Overview: When Casa Lever first opened in the iconic Lever House space in 2009, it was met with rave reviews. Fast forward four years, and the Northern Italian restaurant is still boasting an impressive guest list, catering to everyone from Carine Roitfeld to Diane von Furstenberg.

Insider's Scorecard: The first thing you notice in this impressive, midtown space are the original Andy Warhol paintings casually hanging on the walls. So, it's no wonder that a place like this continues to attract the city's see-and-be-seen crowd. This Fall 2013 Fashion Week, Carine Roitfeld hosted the highly-anticipated CR Fashion Book second issue party at Casa Lever, where she was joined by Anna Dello Russo, Riccardo Tisci, Ciara, Jessica Hart, Karlie Kloss, Olivier Theyskens, Giovanna Battaglia, Doutzen Kroes and Joseph Altuzarra, just to name a few.
