Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano
Posted by Audrey on 07/07/2005
We have been following the chef of this restaurant around for over a year. She was originally at Dean and Deluca, then Giorgionne on Spring Street and I think that Gusto is her place in the sun. The fried artichokes are the best in NY. The stuffed flowers are delicious. The fava bean salad with mint and more is a stroke of genius. We dream of the lemon risotto! They have been open 30 days and we are about to go a third time! The fish is cooked perfectly. Maybe we can't go to Venice every Saturday night....but this Italian trained chef makes us feel like we are right there! The desserts are winners.....each one....yes we have eaten every one. I hate to share this information.....but this is the best new restaurant of the year!

On my first visit, I had dinner with some friends @Gusto. The food, decor and ambience was great. I really enjoyed the fava beans salad and also the frito misto which is why I revisited the place for lunch that same week only to be disappointed the second time round.....so overall inconsistent, but worth a try. Go for dinner the atmosphere is better.

Do not let them seat you facing the sun...and then they call it ambiance. The food is so -so. Not ready to be called professional on any level.

The food was amazingly fresh and superbly prepared. The pasta dishes were especially good. Make sure to try the squash blossoms, and the gnocchi. And the peaches in brandy for dessert. We went during the opening week and the waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable, even though they were incredibly busy. Definitely worth a second, third, oh hell many more trips.
