Italienne

OPENED1011 DAYS AGO

Italienne is a new restaurant on Manhattan’s West Side that merges two legendary cuisines — Italian and French — presented with two dining experiences with two distinct menus.

One section, the taverna, features á la carte dishes and cocktails, while the main dining room serves a four-course prix-fixe menu. The new dining destination is a collaboration between Chef Jared Sippel and General Manager James King who previously worked together at Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, CO.

Sippel’s menu for Italienne embodies the belief that “lines on a map do not define the history or boundary of cuisine.” Dishes celebrate the tastes and flavors of Northern Italy and Southern France, particularly the Provence region.

The taverna serves small plates and shared dishes such as Venetian Cichetada, a seafood-focused platter of chichetti that includes polpettini, boquerones and octopus salad. Another shareable and delicious dish is Canaderli Bolzanina which are bread and cabbage dumplings with apples and horseradish.

Italienne Food

In the dining room, many dishes marry Italian and French flavors such as the Fazio Duck Tagliata which is made with farro verde, foie gras, fennel mostarda, and huckleberry jus. Ingrid’s Lobster merges old and new cuisine with a traditional vichyssoise remixed with coconut alongside lemongrass, and fines herbes.

The theme is also reflected in the cocktails. Their Henri’s Apertif combines traditional French pastis, lemon, egg white, Brooklyn seltzer, orange zest and Italian taggiasca. Their Francese 75 whips up cognac, poli miele, lemon and prosecco.

A nice touch when getting the wine list is that the menu includes a historic map of the region. If you’re a fan of an after-dinner drink, a digestivo cart featuring Gin and Tonics and an extensive selection of Amaro, Eau de Vies, and Grappas will make your decision easier.

The design also reflects both French and Italian aesthetic choices with vintage French wine carafes known as demijohns and a striking bar in the taverna, which is cut from Tuscan white Carrara marble. Step inside Italienne and let it take you to not one, but two of the best culinary regions in the world.
