At The Trattoria we share our version of Italian American Cuisine. We strive to source the finest and freshest ingredients available on the American market, and prepare them with Italian sensibility. The food is rustic and soul satisfying. We continue to offer the same relaxed atmosphere, and come as you are, drink what you want hospitality that we bring you with The Trattoria.

"Always a great meal at The Trattoria. I had the beet salad, lasagna, and the black and white creme brûlée. All delicious! We brought our own wine. Love that! Bread is fantastic! Service great too. The staff is very warm and welcoming. I do wish they would change up the menu more frequently. I feel like many of the dishes have been on the menu for YEARS."

Mother nature is a living canvas. Winter is the essence; the pencil sketch. Spring is the creativity as the oils begin to be applied in a mixture of colors. Summer is the painting reaching its maturity ready for exhibit. And Fall is the many years of the painting being displayed as it slowly weathers from the elements until its hidden spirit is once again revealed, the pencil strokes; "a Pentimento".<br /><br />Inspired by the spirit of Mother nature, culinary artist and owner Dennis Young reflects this progression by creating a series of menus that are in sync with each of the seasons. And like the seasons each menu is merely a layer on the culinary canvas that chef and artist Dennis Young has been painting on for more than half of his life, and if one looks closely you can see through all of those layers and find a covered essence, "a Pentimento".

ilili is New York’s premier contemporary Lebanese restaurant offering inspired Mediterranean cuisine. The menu mixes authentic Lebanese dishes with modern Mediterranean influences to create a culinary journey for the palate and senses. Complementing the international cuisine, ilili offers an impressive wine list that includes wines from all over the world and features favorites from Lebanon and the Mediterranean. The restaurant’s decor echoes the diverse menu, combining the architectural richness of Old Lebanon with an attitude and style that is unmistakably New York. A DJ sets the mood with music from around the globe and soft, amber lighting punctuated by candles create a sexy, sophisticated atmosphere in which to enjoy a relaxed meal. The cuisine, décor and ambience come together to create a new world for your senses to explore, whispering gently in your ear, ilili.

"I love Ilili and have recommended it to friends who love it too. It's hard to find a good restaurant not far from Penn Station, so it's a real gem. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the place is hip and attractive, and the food is phenomenal! Love the variety you get when ordering small plates. Each time I visit, I try something new and have loved it all!"
