Executive Chef Anthony Raggiri and Head Chef Adil Fawzi are the team responsible for the creation of a menu not too often seen in a bistro setting. This complimentary pair, take a proactive role in the maintenance of the kitchen; on any given night throughout the week one if not both of them can be found manning the fires, ensuring that the quality of the dishes they designed never falters. The consistency of the food is obvious to any of their regulars
The menu is a sophisticated, creative combination of classic Provençal fare fused with inspiration from the Mediterranean coast. Chef Anthony Raggiri's menu provides the palette with an eclectic array of dishes drawing tastes from his native Marseille, Spain, Italy, Greece and Morocco, all the while staying true to the premise that less is more.
Walls of exposed brick and bare, candlelit walnut tables create an inviting atmosphere, further accented by burgundy banquettes and terrazzo floors, providing a decidedly Old World ambience to this Upper East Side gem. In the warmer months the Bistro provides austere yet comfortable outdoor seating; with café space on both the avenue and street surrounding this cozy corner spot.
