Mmmmm Branzino...

Lunch Crudo tasting is excellent. And the seafood stew is an unbelievable portion of seafood.

Bring your check book but the food is amazing

This is legitimately the best gnocchi I have ever had in my entire life. Better than the food I ate in Italy.

Highly overrated restaurant! I cant believe zagat has 26 on this.. Couldnt wait to get out of there. Selection is poor, the best items are always missin. The waiter was pushy for no reason. Never back
Serious Eats
This is our go-to place for seafood.

Wishing we had served our Italian coffee here...How about a partnership @escarestaurant? Molti clienti di NY piacerebbero asseggiare nostro cafe di 1870...e anche buono per il suo negozio :)

Ignore the allure of the $16 glass of wine, and get a bottle....The Branzino is amazing!

#8 - IWalked NYC's Top 10 Italian Restaurants. Esca (translated from Italian is “bait") is perfect choice for pre-theatre dinner. Try one of numerous seafood specialties or Southern Italy dishes<LINK>

Spaghetti Neri: amazing! Also, I had a pasta special once with tuna meatballs. It was off the hook!

Esca, Mario Batali's southern Italian trattoria, serves the freshest seafood dishes, like Zuppa Di Pesce, Branzino Per Due, in New York City's theatre district. Find more tips at FN Local.

Come here for a superb pre-theater dinner. Start with the Crudo Tasting followed by the Spaghetti Neri. Or go all out and get the Tasting Menu with the Extra Crudo.

In many ways Esca is as good as the four-starred Le Bernardin. If nothing else, it's cheaper, more relaxed and, bonus, also serves Baltali-brand pasta. [Eater 38 Member]

A perfect match for Esca’s cuisine…Ferrando’s Erbaluce di Caluso (Northwest). The Erbaluce grape variety delivers good acidity, flavors of apple and a distinctive minerality. Salute! agwine.com

Food & Wine editor Dana Cowin raved to us in her New York Diet about the fior di latte with berries here: “Oh my gosh, it was a beautiful way to end the meal.”

Go to the bar and eat with Vic! Knows the menu better than he knows himself!

Every fish served is connected directly to a fisherman known by name. The wait staff is knowledgeable and the food lovely. Enjoy the Crudo and Thresher Shark if you can get it.

Double flights of crudo, and say hi to David Pasternack!
