Mareluna, SoHo’s intimate Italian dining destination, now has a second location in Flatiron at 46 West 22nd St (between 5th and 6th Avenue). Helmed by Executive chef Nick Anson, Mareluna features an innovative take on Italian crowd favorites with expertly-curated seafood options and local produce offerings. The expansion continues restaurateurs Marco Britti and Andreea Milgram’s mission to create exceptionally curated hospitality experiences. “Mareluna has been a very personal journey, creating a concept that was truly reflective of the Italy I love,” said Britti.
Menu options include Burrata & Caramelized Figs with fresh burrata flown in weekly from a small producer in Puglia; Pomodoro Fresco with bronze-cut spaghetti and Datterini tomatoes imported from Campania; and Cacio e Tre Pepe with bucatini, pecorino DOP, and tre pepe. Dishes exclusive to the Flatiron location include Crocchette di Parmigiana with slow-roasted eggplant, San Marzano tomato, parmesan espuma, and basil, and Fried Artichoke Salad with pecorino, mint, arugula, avocado, and lemon vinaigrette.
Seafood also takes center stage with dishes such as Tonno Marinato with yellowfin tuna tartare, pimento, olives, horseradish, lemon, and crostini; a large-format half Mediterranean Octopus char-grilled with salmoriglio, vino rosso reduction and charred tomato salad; and Lobster Termidoro, a celebration of Maine Lobster with rigatoni, pressed sauce, San Marzano, lobster crema, and basil.
Visitors to Mareluna will also find innovative cocktails like the Aqua Pazza (Tequila, Campari, Grappa, Blood Orange Juice, Dill Syrup, Lime Juice), Marechiaro (Rum, Yellow Chartreuse, Dry Vermouth, Lily, Aquarella with gin, Italicus, Butterfly Pea Flower, Lavender Bitters, Pink Peppercorn, and Eggs White), and Volare (vodka, Dimmi, Amaranth, Blueberry, and Basil Orange Bitters).
Weekends bring brunch with Panettone French Toast, Flatiron steak with Italian potatoes & sunny eggs, and Lump Crab Benedict. There is also an option for a 60-minute bottomless brunch with bellinis, mimosas, spritzes, and more.
