Inspired by a traditional Italian street filled with local vendors, such as a butcher, cheesemonger, fishmonger, and more, Harry’s Table in New York City is offering a new type of culinary journey.
At Two Waterline Square near Lincoln Center, the groundbreaking development is designed by world renowned architects including Richard Meier & Partners Architects, Viñoly Architects, and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates. Internationally acclaimed London-based AD100 interior designer Martin Brudnizki designed the interiors. It’s home to the first food market by the Cipriani family.
The mission of Harry’s Table is to provide customers with an authentic Italian culinary experience within a 28,000-square-foot space, including:
♦ Caffè: a coffee bar by Lavazza delivering the authentic Italian caffè experience.
♦ Gelato e Dolci: homemade gelati made with top-quality ingredients and traditional recipes found in an Italian pasticceria, including the renowned vanilla meringue and lemon pie, served in all Cipriani restaurants.
♦ Juice Bar: handcrafted juices, smoothies, and health shots made to order from fresh, natural ingredients.
♦ Insalate: the option to pick from signature salads composed from seasonal produce such as the beloved artichoke salad, the cucumber salad, or compose your own.
♦ Pasta: freshly made pasta such as ravioli and tagliatelle to enjoy on-site or to cook at home.
♦ Gastronomia: gourmet Italian food including the Venetian “Baccalà Montecato,” Carciofi alla Romana, Lasagna alla Bolognese, and more.
♦ Panini: made with fresh ingredients and fragrant bread baked daily, including the Venetian soft sandwiches tramezzini.
♦ Pescheria: a tribute to one of the main Venetian traditions — the fish market — offering local and Mediterranean catches.
♦ Carne: Fossil Farms Artisan Butcher offers the finest pasture-raised beef of New England farms, free-range poultry from Pennsylvania, Berkshire pork, and specialty game.
♦ Pizza: quality ingredients like fior di latte or buffalo mozzarella and sweet tomato sauce come together with the right dough fermentation to create the perfect pizza.
♦ Formaggi e Salumi: the cheese and charcuterie shop provides the most exciting cheeses and meats that Italy and the world have to offer.
♦ Caviar: the World’s finest domestic and imported caviar, smoked salmon, and other gourmet foods from Caviarteria since 1950.
The experience is complete with a signature Bellini restaurant and a terrace overlooking the water. A full bar inspired by the glamorous days of mid-century Italy with timber paneling, leather stools, and sleek light fixtures take a central role in the space while the more formal restaurant faces the waterfront.
“Our goal is to create a kitchen away from home for residents and the neighborhood, as well as an interesting and fun destination for visitors. It is really exciting to be a part of GID’s innovative vision for this unique and vibrant residential neighborhood,” says Giuseppe Cipriani.
