In 2011 Chef Alain Allegretti opened Barchetta, which features a versatile menu in a casual bistro-style atmosphere. The interior of Barchetta, by Brooklyn based Crème Design, provides a sexy and dynamic atmosphere for a casual dining experience. We offer guests a range of private dining options, including the opportunity to buyout the restaurant for large scale events and dinners, as well as a semi-private balcony for more intimate affairs. Our menu: Visit Chelsea for some of the city's best French bistro style dishes including Escargot Persillade, Moules Frites, Frisée aux Lardons, and many more that bring the taste of Southern France to the tip of your tongue. Try the Octopus, Soupe de Poissons, Loup de Mer, or the Coquilles St. Jacques with seaweed crusted scallops and experience the South of France right in NYC.
- The Restaurant Writes...
Barchetta, Italian for ‘little boat’ captures the charms of the Mediterranean seaside. An Italian seafood trattoria, Barchetta is a partnership between Esca’s acclaimed Chef & Partner Dave Pasternack and John Meadow’s LDV Hospitality. Pasternack brings his passion of sourcing the freshest ingredients of the sea and expertise of Italian cuisine to Barchetta’s intimate yet bustling atmosphere inspired by the communal charm of the rustic trattoria experience. Barchetta provides a casual bar dining experience of Pasternack’s trademark crudo tastings or a feast of homemade pastas, seafood antipasti, and whole fish paired with an eclectic international wine list. Delivered with gracious, genuine hospitality, Barchetta brings la dolce vita to life in New York City.
