We visited this spot for a Sunday brunch as part of NYC restaurant week. The restaurant is quite artisticAlly done up - it’s a mix between the modern simple and the comfy homey style that’s hard to explain but impresses instantly. Restaurant week menu had its limitations - we had the lasagna and the gnocchi. The gnocchi was soft and cheesy and delicious- but so rich that with nothing else to break the flavor, I simply couldn’t finish my plate.
Desserts were good. Panna cotta flavored with orange was a refreshing change from the usual pairing with berries. Ricotta cheesecake was good, but I’ve had better in New York.
Came here for restaurant week. Their entree menu was a bit limited to all pasta options so I ordered their most basic spaghetti with fresh tomatoes. The texture of the pasta was pretty good actually - not overcooked nor undercooked. I think it would have tasted better with meatballs but it was not an option. The sauce was typical. I ordered the veal, tuna, capers as the appetizer and it was surprisingly pretty good. A little too much sauce from what I expected but it goes well together. Only wish it came with some bread or something because after eating like half of it - it can get overwhelming due to the overloaded sauce. For dessert, I ordered the sorbets - they have interesting flavors such as apple, grapefruit and pear and it was delicious and refreshing.
Outstanding experience! Don't leave NYC without trying this new venue and do it before the word gets out. A group of us had a spectacular meal, starting with several appetizers and then on to main courses. Everything was excellent, but the tuna carpaccio, gnocchi and cacio e pepe were to die for. Wish we could have tried the entire menu. The staff were friendly and upbeat and they make the whole experience a delight. Great wine list and prices are very reasonable. Jordan, the proprietor, took the time to come out and speak with us. The venue is cool, with an attached gallery and a relaxed modern vibe. Highly recommended. Will go again next time I'm in town.
Loved it! Amazing service, great food, true Italian vibes. Unique style and aesthetics. Ps it’s from the person who lived in Italy for a year.
