The Sosta is the newest concept from the Esquared Hospitality group. The restaurant falls into a category that seems to be sweeping NYC dining – fine-casual. You order from the counter, but what you are presented with is carafes of rosé and elevated grab-n-go (or stay) food. The space is designed by the mind of Samantha Wasser who is behind By Chloe as well. She has created a fun & modern atmosphere, complete with a giant pink “mangiamo, baby!” neon sign. The menu is primarily Italian offering massive chef-crafted salads, an over flowing charcuterie board, and fresh-baked focaccia sandwiches. There is a list of 5 freshly made pastas & sauces all under $14 for a substantial portion. You would be hard pressed to find higher quality food at this low price point.
