Located at 85 Tenth Avenue in NYC, Del Posto is the creation of Mario Batali, Joe Bastianich, and Lidia Bastianich. The restaurant’s goal is to create an atmosphere of European luxury where guests enjoy refined Italian cuisine and a world class wine list. The menu is crafted from the highest quality ingredients and tailored to provide an unrivaled experience. Lunch consists of a 3 course prix fixe with antipasto, secondo, and dolce. Dinner guests can choose for their table the five course Il Menu Del Posto or the sumptuous eight course Captain’s Menu, each available with wine pairings by Del Posto’s sommelier. Each dish is executed to perfection and so beautifully presented with a truly memorable combination of flavors and textures. The food is pure art — as soon as you see it, you know it tastes amazing.
Of course, I always notice the interior of a restaurant. As soon as you walk into Del Posto, the restaurant’s design influences your expectations and sets the tone for the meal you’re about to enjoy. Del Posto’s dining room is opulent and lavish, but also inviting. The food is bright and colorful while the interior is a handsome and masculine contrast with dark woods and geometric floors. The yellow hue on the ceiling provides a light counter balance, and the overall effect is just a great backdrop to the food. Del Posto is definitely on my must-visit list!
