Foursquare Tips

  • Start with a cappuccino and croissant and then go for the smoked salmon frittata with goat cheese or the pappardelle with duck ragu, shaved chocolate and orange -- a dish that sounds odd but works.
  • Italian snacks like arancini, veal tartare, and grilled cuttlefish, house-made pappardelle with duck ragu, dry-aged sirloin steak. Try getting steak at the Tenement Museum.
  • One of the best new restaurants on the upper west side. I love the selection of Italian wines and beer; and the pasta dishes are killer. Pappardella with duck ragu is a must.
  • Pop by Storico's pop-up Beer Hall for a cold one before or after your meal, part of the New-York Historical Society's Beer Here exhibit!
  • Must try the Langostino Fritto! Can't miss any of Chef Jim Burke's pastas either!
  • Make like a Venetian and compose your meal out of the excellent cicchetti on offer. Don't pass up the Baccal (salt cod):
  • The stinging nettle tortelli is delicious! You've got to try the salted dark chocolate ice cream!
  • The Chicken Parm is great!!
  • Excellent Brunch Menu ~ Try the Steak & Eggs!
  • Pasta for brunch. So good!
  • Great ambience - very tucked away and awesome food!
  • Lemon Arancini and Gnocchi!
  • Salmon and eggs were delicious- perfect quick brunch!
  • Pasta is great: cacio e pepe with lobster and the tagliatelle with pomodoro sauce. The place and service are great although the restaurant is a little pricey for what it offers
  • Love the design-minded decor, sky-high ceilings, gold chandeliers and bright yellow banquette. Delicious poached eggs with polenta and mushroom rag, and yummy brioche with homemade jams for brunch.
  • Paninis and salads.
  • A fun place to eat within the NY Historical Society.
  • Fantastic dinner spot. The roast chicken is incredible!
  • Hidden gem, food consistently good
  • Good fare, not heavy. Good Bloody Mary. It's not a hangover-curing brunch, though.
