Celestine

OPENED735 DAYS AGO

With some blockbuster openings spreading all over Dumbo like wildfire like Cecconi’s and Sugarcane most recently, we are so excited to have yet another excuse to head to Dumbo – Celestine. The latest opening taking residence at Dumbo’s waterfront is a welcome addition to the scene and offers something slightly more intimate and relaxed than some of the other spots nearby.

The Spot:

Celestine is a Mediterranean-inspired spot isn’t quite as large as its neighbours with just 85 seats inside and a further 45 outside but that’s exactly the point of this space that has been designed by the same team behind Lilia and Grand Army. It also has some of the best views of the Manhattan skyline from its location at 1 John Street near Pearl Street.

The Food:

The Med-inspired menu here incorporates part-northern African, part-Middle Eastern, and part-Italian cuisines and was created by Chef Garett Mcmahon (a Perilla and Bouley alum). He uses a wood-fired grill to create much of the dishes that include a whole grilled fish with fennel, artichoke an dill salad, wood-roasted chicken with saffron and basmati rice and Turkish dumpling filled with short rib. Choose your dining partners carefully because all dishes are meant to be shared.

In a Nutshell:

Celestine‘s aim is to become a place for locals – something that could be difficult given its tourist-friendly location – and many seats will stay open for walk-ins. The owners are hoping for the restaurant to become a neighborhood asset rather than a tourist amenity.
