Among the dishes served will be a roasted turbot served atop a marrow-laden bone with morels and spring garlic purée. We’re told the menu will also include plenty of ramps, asparagus, and spring peas. 328 W. 12th St., 212-414-3000

Of course, Conant’s spaghetti is on the menu. 355 West 14th St., 212-691-0555
