TOWN Concierge Picks: Cucina Ciano December 2, 2013

NoHo, Manhattan
TOWN Concierge Picks: Cucina Ciano, Manhattan, New York

Cucina Ciano

81 East 78th Street at Park Avenue

This newly-opened Upper East Side gem (and yes, this newbie is in fact the reincarnated offshoot of the shuttered Ciano on 22nd Street) is quickly redefining the farm-to-fork movement, one seasonally-charged dish at a time.

Taking a hint from the charming space’s former tenant, Carpe Diem, the team behind this delicious operation is truly seizing every opportunity to reinvent the wheel of rustic Italian fare. Case in point? Their choice to let the ingredients shine on their own in a simple, approachable manner, and the insistence upon a half bottle program, more inventive than any seen in the area to date.

Bountiful plates of fresh burrata panzanella and hearty house-made papardelle with pork ragout set the stage for scene-stealing meatballs from meatball master, Chef Tin Huynh and that self-same chicken in a clay pot for which Ciano has become so famous.

Uncork a spectacular half bottle, or several, to fete the uptown incoming of such a fantastic dining establishment. Mangia!
