When you think of the flat iron district, homemade Italian pasta may not be the fist thing that comes to your mind, but it should. Along 24th street, just off 6th avenue you’ll find a fantastic little restaurant that is a hidden gem I’m happy to introduce you to. San Rocco NYC oozes authentic old world charm, fresh food, and a wine list to rival any in NY. What San Rocco has (in my opinion) that some of the others don’t, dedication and authenticity to true Milanese Italian style cuisine, in a über chic and relaxed environment.
There is a wonderfully charming chef who is the mastermind of the kitchen at San Rocco. The chef is charming, takes the time to greet his guests and by the look of each plate presentation, you can tell the pride he takes in his food. “I don’t like a ‘fat’ kitchen, so all my food is high quality and we make everything here on site. Food should look as good as it tastes so presentation is important. As for great cocktails or great Italian wines, we have a lot so you don’t have to worry about finding one you’ll love.” The goal of San Rocco is to change the menu seasonally, so that only the freshest vegetables and produce will be used. He is truly an eco-friendly chef.
What San Rocco also provides is a wonderful and unique atmosphere for any of your wedding related events. From your rehearsal dinner to the after wedding brunch, they will be able to create a menu especially for your special day. What a great girls afternoon – wine and food tasting.
Join San Rocco every Wednesday evening for their delectable apperitivo bar and a free Seperatist cocktail, thru July 30th when you show proof that you have read this article. Tonight is a perfect ‘date night’, so leave the wedding planning….for a few hours, grab your honey and enjoy the night.
