BREAD & TULIPS (Pane & Tulipani) is a cozy neighborhood spot serving rustic Italian cooking in a casual setting. The menu is inspired by the regional diversity of Italy and features handmade pastas and pizzas in addition to traditional antipasti, crostini, etc. All outdoor seating is on our sidewalk café and terrace along Park Avenue.

The warmly lit, spacious dining room is informal and comfortable; a simple tulip adorns each table. Indoor tables are listed as "standard" on OpenTable.

We look forward to welcoming you!

Great atmosphere. Wonderful staff. Delicious food. Would recommend to locals and tourists alike—I’ve never had anything less than an exemplary experience here. The arancini is a must try.

Wonderful meal with family - service was excellent. Our favorite dish was the exceptional appetizer with scallops and asparagus, but the pizza was delicious as was the pasta. We will be back for sure!

One of the best costumer service I’ve had in a restaurant!
Jonathan was great! He made sure we felt welcomed and was very attentive if we needed beverages or food. The food was amazing. We ordered pasta, calamari, meatballs, and pizza. The pizza was so good we ordered another one! I cannot wait to come back to bread & tulips. Everything was great! See you guys soon.

Very intimate place in the heart of Manhattan without outdoor or secluded dining in their basement (it is actually quite atmospheric). Food was delicious. My only knock is that they seemed to be out of a couple of items.

I had the pappardelle and still have dreams about it. I just can’t get this at Houston. It was so good.
My husband had never been to nyc. He loved everything about it and this restaurant was the icing on the cake.
We loved sitting outside. The server was so nice snd attentive. The food and ambience were fantastic!!!

My family enjoyed our dining experience here as we celebrated my mother’s birthday. It was nice to be able to get out and enjoy a nice meal during this pandemic and not have to worry about cleanliness. Our waiter Jonathan was amazing and ensured that my mother enjoyed her birthday. He made us laugh with his jokes and saw to it that everything came out to our liking. Definitely a great experience.

My granddaughter and I celebrated our mutual birthdays at Bread & Tulips. I have been here several times, but it was the first time for my granddaughter. She loved it! We shared a meatball appetizer and then shared a pizza marguerita and cassrecce bolognese. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Each of our desserts was served with a lit candle. It was a great experience. Thank you

Bread and Tulips is one of my favorite restaurants in NYC and they have done such a phenomenal job managing during the COVID crisis. Everyone is friendly while keeping a safe distance, the food is still delicious and the outdoor atmosphere is charming. A wonderful place to dine with friends, family or even solo! 10/10 recommend!

I always have an extraordinary experience here. The quality of the food and wine has not once wavered, and the service is always warm and helpful. I especially appreciate their use of locally sourced produce and clean meat, seafood, and poultry.

I've recommended Bread and Tulips to friends and colleagues for everything from anniversary dinners and first dates to cocktail parties and fundraisers.

Went here with family for dinner. We received very friendly and clean service. Hand sanitizer bottles on each table, wait staff all wearing masks and gloves. Tables were spaced out, plus high enough walls between table and Park Ave to feel like we had privacy. Quiet and peaceful setting. We were happy with all of our meals - recommend the grilled octopus, burrata, pappardelle, chicken parm. We enjoyed it!

During this COVID pandemic, it was good to see that a bottle of hand sanitizer was immediately brought to our table for use throughout the night. Unfortunately, every time our server spoke to us, he lowered his mask or pulled it away from his face even though I kept asking him to cover his nose and mouth completely. He would for a split second and then move it away again. I places my face mask back on while he spoke to us to better protect myself. Also, for some reason when he took our drink orders, he only took my dinner order and not the other person’s order. I only realized this when my entree was served to me and our shared appetizer which my friend was ordering never came. The appetizer was then ordered and he never took my friend’s entree order! They brought me bread for my entree which had a metal cover over it while waiting for our appetizer and then my friend’s entree. I feel it should have been taken back and kept warm and served at the same time as the person sitting with me. Our delicious Burrata & Heirloom Tomato appetizer was served without plates. We did not have bread plates either. There was no oil or butter served with the bread. I had to awkwardly reach over my covered entree and eat over the entree cover and lap. We had to call over the waiter again to ask to order my friend’s entree. By the time it arrived, my Pappardelle entree (spiced, braised leg of lamb, tomato, parmigiano) was cold and sticking together but was still very good tasty, at least. The wine glass pours were much better than the rest of the service. I imaging this cannot be the standard or service there and would be willing to try it again before writing the place off because the food was very good.

We decided to have our farewell dinner for one of our colleagues because we knew Bread & Tulips would not disappoint. Food is always delicious. Handmade pastas and thin crust pizzas, vegetable sides fresh and nicely seasoned. Good wines. Lovely, warm and rustic decor. Small attentive bar & lounge area. Understated, relaxed. A hidden gem.
