Chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Scott Conant debuts Fusco, his first solo New York City restaurant in nearly a decade. Named for his grandmother Carminella Fusco, who embodied old-world hospitality, the restaurant is located in the former Veritas space in the bustling Gramercy neighborhood, offering an upscale approach to Italian cuisine in an elegant setting.

Designed by Brian Leister, Fusco evokes a warm and welcoming vibe reminiscent of one's own home. A sophisticated bar and high-top seating area opens into an intimate dining room, where guests gather in cozy banquettes over Conant's house-made pastas and Italian fare, served with a thoughtful selection of new and old world wines. Suspended above, chandeliers add a gilded glint to the softly lit space.

Fusco is a great restaurant. From the flavors and the presentation to the gracious staff, I have absolutely loved it every time I have gone. My son knew of the chef from “Chopped” and we went for the two seating opening dinner that was fantastic.
We are so very sorry that the restaurant has closed and we’re there on the last night it was open. It is such a shame that it is closing and my family will miss it a lot.

We knew the food was going to be good because of Chef Scott’s reputation, but it was better than we expected!! The portions were of the right size, and full of flavor. Everyone in our group was excited to share what they were eating because they liked it so much and wanted to share the experience. The service was excellent and the restaurant has a comfortable feel to it.

This is an amazing restaurant. They deliver everything you would expect when dining at a Scott Conant restaurant. The pasta tasting menu was the BEST pasta dishes we’ve ever tasted. If you are in NYC, put Fusco on you list...

We were on a day trip to NYC and there are so many great restaurants to choose from that I was having a hard time deciding where to make reservations. But a general manager of a restaurant that I love in Baltimore highly recommended Fuscos and I am grateful he did. I am Italian and well traveled in Italy and the Pasta Pomodoro here is really wonderful! The food is creative - try the smoked mushroom sogo. They have a fixed priced menu that is a great value; you are not limited to a few selections but the entire menu is available to you. Everything we ordered was excellently prepared and presented. The service was attentive and impeccable without being "stuffy." This is a five star experience.

I thought the food and service were fabulous, we had nice options for cocktails and wine. The small plates were very tasty and the main dinner was excellent. But the star of the show was the Tiramisu - that is one of my favorite desserts but this was by far the best I have ever, ever had - that homemade chocolate syrup poured over right before you eat it was simply amazing. If nothing else, go for the that darn dessert!

Fusco is a nicely appointed space with an exceptional staff. The food is of a level you would expect from a Scott Conant spot...great flavors, yet comforting. The service was prompt and unintrusive demonstrating insight into the menu. We only got the names of two people (ironically both named Jackie) the staff manager and our primary waitress and both were delightful.

The appetizers were the stars of the evening. Short ribs, burrata, mushroom sugo polenta, and hamachi were DELICIOUS. Main courses were solid. Chicken entree was a standout. Pasta pomodoro was also very yummy. Wine selection was very nice too. Desserts were very good (but they all had a similar feel). Service was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive. Decor is nice but nothing extraordinary. Final bill: Pricey but expected. Would def go back.

I was there for my birthday...the atmosphere was quiet and elegant...service was seamless. I ordered the Branzino...it was the best I've had. My partner ordered the steak which was xcellant. Portions were surprisingly ample. For desert I had the tiramisu..not to be missed. If you're looking for excellant food with elegant surroundings where you are not rushed...Fusco is a MUST.

Dined at Fusco on Friday evening ... quiet night (probably because of the holiday weekend). Service was great - pastas were delish! The Antipasti for the table was a huge disappointment and a total rip-off ... tiny, tiny portions (maybe a tablespoon-full) of spreads. Not worth spending the money ... choose something else - get another pasta to share before you waste your money on this stuff. Not quite sure this restaurant will make it ... it is quiet, well lit and the chairs are comfortable with tables spaced comfortably. Try it ... just don't order the Antipasti.

The service was very slow. I had to constantly try to get attention to ask a question, to order, to get our wine order. This is not how I expected the service to be for your restaurant. While the food was good, I was disappointed on other important aspects. Sorry.

Love this restaurant, and usually eat at the bar with my husband. But we had a friend join us so we sat at a table for the first time. Same great experience. Creative and delicious food, always a delight to order multiple courses to taste all this chef's great creations. Will continue to come back over and over again.
