Located in the former home of Craftsteak, Colicchio and Sons, New York offers top-of-the-line American cuisine served in a comfortable and chic contemporary space in New York City. There are two menus at Colicchio & Sons, one in the casual Tap Room (located up front) and another in the proper dining room. Both menus were crafted by the restaurant’s founder Tom Colicchio, a well seasoned chef with a distinct level of prestige and notoriety in the culinary world.
Colicchio and Sons’ menus offer a unique taste and perspective to even the most adventurous of diners. There are elements of French technique to the cooking here, as well as an appreciable Italian dedication to ingredients. There are Indian flavors, and central European ones; there are nods also to Spain, to the Greenmarket, and to North Africa. The result (surprisingly) is a menu with an aesthetic that is entirely American, and entirely modern. At Colicchio and Sons you can lose yourself in the tasting menu, or the Chef’s Seasonal Menu that offers a variety of exotic and exclusive dishes. Or, if you’re not up for indulging you can have anything from escargot to a bacon, potato & chive crème fraîche pizza in the tap room. And if you’re still scratching your head you can distract yourself with plenty of wine, along with artisanal cheeses and exotic teas imported from far-off places like Armenia and Taiwan.
Colicchio owns and operates numerous restaurants that span the country, including Craft, Mr. Colicchio’s flagship restaurant (also located in NYC). At this sister restaurant there is no caramelized yogurt, no grape-pumpkin marmalade- the composed plates do not exhibit the sophistication currently on offer at Colicchio & Sons. When dining at Colicchio and Sons, one can expect the unexpected- a unique perspective on food, with an incomparable taste to boot.
