This bucolic northeast suburb is easily recognized thanks to the stretches of white fences that line its roads. The village is minutes from Easton Town Center, and home to the Abercrombie campus and lots of its employees.

The suburban-strip-mall exterior is deceiving in the case of this locally owned Italian restaurant, which sprang up in New Albany less than a year ago. Try the housemade gnocchi or grilled chicken marsala with mashed potatoes for a taste of Italy in the neighborhood.

This Lifestyles Communities-owned bar, built into one of their condo neighborhoods, is the place to see and be seen in New Albany. Whether it's for dinner, happy hour, a weekend out or a riotous sand volleyball game, this place can get packed. It helps, we suppose, that this is one of the only watering holes in this northeast neighborhood.
