 Barchetta
Barchetta
Barchetta, Italian for ‘little boat’ captures the charms of the Mediterranean seaside. An Italian seafood trattoria, Barchetta is a partnership between Esca’s acclaimed Chef & Partner Dave Pasternack and John Meadow’s LDV Hospitality. Pasternack brings his passion of sourcing the freshest ingredients of the sea and expertise of Italian cuisine to Barchetta’s intimate yet bustling atmosphere inspired by the communal charm of the rustic trattoria experience. Barchetta provides a casual bar dining experience of Pasternack’s trademark crudo tastings or a feast of homemade pastas, seafood antipasti, and whole fish paired with an eclectic international wine list. Delivered with gracious, genuine hospitality, Barchetta brings la dolce vita to life in New York City.

 Saul
Saul
After 14 successful years in the neighborhood, Boerum Hill’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Saul, has moved to a new and larger space in the world-renowned Brooklyn Museum. Chef Saul Bolton has collaborated with the Brooklyn Museum and Restaurant Associates to bring the vibrant community a remodeled and refined version of the lauded New American restaurant. Chef Bolton also oversees food and beverage for the Museum’s café, the Counter.<br /> <br />Available a la carte, prix fixed, or via a chef’s tasting, the menus at Saul are inspired both by the season’s bounty, as well as the products and ingredients sourced from the restaurant’s long-standing artisanal purveyors. Guests will find a number of old favorites on the menu, in addition to several re-imagined newcomers. To complement Chef Bolton’s fare is Saul’s impressive wine list and cocktail program where mixologist Dan Carlson has created a number of seasonal libations for guests to enjoy.<br /> <br />

Betony, named after an herb in the mint family known for its healing qualities, is a Modern American restaurant overseen by Executive Chef Bryce Shuman (the former Executive Sous Chef of Eleven Madison Park) and General Manager Eamon Rockey (formerly of Eleven Madison Park, Atera, and Aska ). <br /><br />The restaurant is located a block off of Fifth Avenue, features soaring ceilings, contemporary photos of New York City street scenes, a 35-seat bar and lounge and 85-seat dining room. A two-course lunch prix fixe ($42) is offered Monday through Friday, and both a four-course prix fixe ($110) and seasonal tasting menu ($215) are available at dinner. Patrons who dine at the bar in the evening are welcome to order from the bar menu, the prix fixe or the tasting menu. For guests joining us prior to seeing a show, we offer a two-course pre-theater menu ($65) available from 5:30 - 6:30PM.

Built around a California-style culinary philosophy that takes heavy cues from the seasons, Upland balances a familiar rusticity with a smart global approach, all enhanced with a New Yorker’s eye for detail. The restaurant offers an artful array of starters, entrees and sides, each plate accented with chef Justin Smillie’s enticing and urbane touch. The wine program, overseen by beverage manager Chantelle Pabros, matches the excitement coming out of Upland’s open kitchen, with a worldly 500-bottle list and a clever by-the-glass selection that’s remarkably food-friendly.
