Foursquare Tips

  • Where we go for our Nutella calzone fix. Never heard of it? TRY IT. It's also a perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail after work -- just be careful the wax from the giant candles doesn't ruin your drink!
  • Don't come here and pretend that you're not going to have pizza. In the end you're not just going to have a margarita pizza... You're going to go for the truffle pizza. Just stating the facts....
  • Because it's attached to the Bowery Hotel, Gemma is a classy yet easy spot for celeb spotting. People I've met here include Thom Yorke and David Byrne. Keep your eyes peeled.
  • The truffle pizza is amazing, and the watercress / pear salad (add grilled chicken) is fantastic.
  • Full Disclaimer: My husband is an owner of this hotel. That being said, I still find it a top notch place to sit down and enjoy a hearty breakfast over coffee and the paper.
  • Ask for their fancy osmosis water. Get the bubbles of course.
  • The food is real good. Half the staff must be instructed to act like pricks, because they are way too consistent about it for it to be a mistake.
  • branzino is the tip.
  • The Contadina pizza: eggs, mushrooms, Fontina, truffle oil with prosciutto or bacon. Yum.
  • Get drunk and people watch
  • love having breakfasts here: not as packed as Balthazar in the mornings. go on a long early early run, then to an early meeting here and get the protein breakfast. tea on the side!
  • Good Italian with great ambiance and frequent celebrity spottings (Jessica Biel, Chris Cooper). Go in summer and eat outside! (3 of 4 petals via Fondu)
  • favorite local hang out. pizza is great. pasta is great. staff is great!
  • Eggplant parm is incredible
  • NY. Gemmas location in the Bowery Hotel and menu make it a great place to dine with friends. Sidewalk seating in the summer is a bonus. Must try: the burrata, grape tomato & black olive pizza.
  • Steak panini, all the way
  • Enjoy people watching on a warm evening & dine al fresco. The service is a bit slow but we love the Watermelon & Ricotta Salata and the Linguini Frutti Di Mare. Reservations for hotel guests only.
  • Get the polenta truffle fries. Must have!
  • Talk to wine sommelier Vincent about his days of training lions in NYC.
