Serafina Restaurant Group has opened its newest Vino e Cucina in the heart of the Financial District at 30 Broad Street at Exchange Place.
Founded nearly three decades ago by Vittorio Assaf and Fabio Granato, Serafina started with one small location on the Upper East Side and quickly made a name for itself as a destination for contemporary Italian cuisine crafted with the highest quality ingredients sourced from Italy. Now, Serafina operates over 40 restaurants across the US and around the world [Italy, Japan, and others] as Assaf and Granato continue to bring their delicious favorites to a wider audience.
This new opening is the third Serafina Vino e Cucina concept, which merges Serafina’s classic Italian cuisine with a curated selection of wines from the best wine regions in Italy curated by Serafina’s Master Sommelier Alessandra Rotondi. Each menu item has a wine pairing and journey specifically selected by Rotondi.
The menu begins with Antipasti and Insalatesuch as Burrata & Prosciutto Di Parma and Avocado San Pietro with arugula, shrimp, cannellini beans, grape tomatoes and champagne mustard vinaigrette. Signature Pizzas include the VIP Classic Margherita with San Marzano tomatoes, Fior di Latte mozzarella, and basil; Napolitana with anchovies, capers and basil; and the Tartufo Nero with a bouquet of Italian cheeses and black truffles from Nunzia Di Nardo truffle hunters in Alba.
Other offerings include house-made pastas and larger plates like Branzino in white wine sauce with fingerling potatoes; Cotoletta Milanese with thinly pounded and breaded crispy chicken cutlet served with arugula and cherry tomatoes; and Double R Ranch steaks or Filet Mignon alla Griglia, both grilled. Classic desserts like Tiramisu and Torta di Ricotta round out the meal.
The new location also features both indoor and outdoor dining in the warmer months. For more information, visit serafinavinoecucina.com
