Overview:

Danny Meyer is on a roll opening new venues in 2017. His 3rd and newest space within The Redbury Hotel is Vini e Fritti. The concept is a Roman-style aperitivi bar, celebrating the marriage of bubbles and salty, crispy antipasti. Casual and unfussy small plates like fritto misto, housemade straciatella, and marinated vegetables - alongside Champagne, Italian wines, craft beers, refreshing spritzes, and cocktails.  Go to grab a quick drink and shared bite or have a more extensive evening with a full dinner.

Martina Pizzeria

IMG_6625.jpg

Overview:

Martina is the newest restaurant concept from the Union Square Hospitality Group team. The venue is supposed to be a paired down version of their upscale pizza place, Marta. The space is casual and you order food at the counter, which comes to you quickly (pizzas cook in under 3 minutes). The menu is inexpensive and manageable with all items costing under $12. There is a small menu of antipasti and salad plus 8 pizza options including margherita, salame, and capricciosa with artichokes, ham, mushrooms, black olives, mozzarella & egg. Pizza crust here is super thin so if you're expecting traditional NYC pizza, you'll be disappointed. Although the food is quick and inexpensive, the team is hoping that people will think of the concept as “fine-casual” as opposed to “fast-casual” because of the elevated service touches and alcohol service.
