Leuca

OPENED1021 DAYS AGO

Leuca is one of the most anticipated new restaurant openings in Williamsburg.

The new restaurant completes the total offering at the newly opened William Vale Hotel after the openings of Westlight and Mister Dips – this restaurant, however, is influenced by Southern Italy.

Chef Andrew Carmellini (previously of Locanda Verde, Bar Primi and The Dutch) is behind Leuca which was named after a town in the Salento area of Puglia in Southern Italy following a trip there.

Carmellini has also enlisted the help of executive chef Anthony Ricco on the menu, which features classic Italian fare like a ricotta and broccoli rabe pie and a margherita pie – all cooked in a wood fired oven. Other dishes include chicken for two with blistered peppers and a bass with beans and preserved potatoes. The cuisine is more an influence of Southern Italy than a direct interpretation.

Dessert will bring a decadent sundae built for two that features espresso gelato, chocolate sauce, caramel crumble, meringue, rum granita, whipped cream and an extra shot of espresso, poured at the table affogato-style, and served in a large glass coupe. Just when you thought you’d never see a more opulent sundae, the dessert is named after the iconic Italian actress, Sophia Loren.

Leuca will soon be open for breakfast, lunch and brunch with the current offering just being dinner. But, if you’re going for dinner, you’d be well advised to head upstairs to William Vale’s, Westlight, bar to take in those panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline for a post-dinner libation or three.
