New York City Restaurants: What’s New (Fiamma Osteria, Bobo181, Savarona)
Another flurry of restaurant openings as the fall season approaches. What’s good? What’s maybe….not so good? Let me know.
Fiamma Osteria, 206 Spring St.
Reopening in late September is Fiamma Osteria in SoHo, helmed by chef Fabio Trabocchi’s. He was formerly chef de cuisine of the Maestro restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Tyson’s Corner outside of Washington D.C. I always like to see a connection with the place I used to call home.
Bobo, 181 West 10th St.
Opening in mid-September, is Bobo, which apparently stands for “bourgeois bohemian.” I always thought the two terms contradicted each other, but what do I know? The menu will highlight traditional market ingredients “in the tradition of a European dinner party.” That’s a bit of a puzzler, but it sounds intriguing. The chef is Nicolas Cantrel.
Savarona, 420 East 59th St.
In November, husband-and-wife team, Temel and Hatice Artukmac will offer high-end Turkish cuisine at Savarona. The menu will showcase foods originating from the country’s varied regions – such as the Aegean’s fresh grilled fish cooked with Turkish olive oil and sea salts and traditional meat dishes from the city of Adana.
