About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Chef Dale Talde and his partners, David Massoni and John Bush, all of Three Kings Restaurant Group, opening three unique concepts inside the Arlo Nomad Hotel: Massoni, a full-service restaurant that serves “Inauthentic Italian” fare; BARlo, the 2nd floor bar and adjoining terrace; and The Heights, a seasonal rooftop bar and patio.

At Massoni, diners have the option of breakfast, lunch or dinner, and are able to sample Chef Dale Talde’s “Inauthentic Italian” cuisine, featuring classic Italian dishes with multi-cultural flavors and ingredients. Think Arancini Balls but with biyrani-style rice, served with cool ranch raita and spicy tomato.

At BARlo, located on the 2nd floor, the full Massoni dinner menu is available, including the cocktails, as well as an additional classic cocktail list, focusing on the cocktails that are standards in the bars of New York City.

This restaurant doesn’t exist. It should be taken off the app. Not only that but when I called to confirm the reservation, they confirmed it.

I get there only to find out the restaurant has been closed and they don’t have my reservation.

After not having a place to eat I attempted to make a last minute reservation elsewhere using the app, I couldn’t do this because the app only allows one reservation per evening.

I was on a date and this was incredibly embarrassing.

Had the buffet breakfast, this honestly just okay. The eggs were cold, and there were not very many healthy options. Mostly bread, bacon, potatoes etc. Also very few gluten free choices.

80% of the menu on Open Table is not available due to major restaurant remodeling - very disappointing. "1000 pt" offer at time of reservation not provided upon receipt of points (100 received).
Lots of better choices in NYC.

Absolutely wonderful experience at Massoni. I tend to shy away from Midtown, but this place has all the sensibility and ambience of any of your LES favorites. Their unique twists on Italian classics are not only unexpected but executed to perfection, such as the brown-butter burrata, curry-infused arancini, and rigatoni osso bucco that puts grandma's sunday sauce to shame. As a native New Yorker I did not expect to like "Detroit style" pizza - I ate my words quite literally. The pie w/ pickled peppers & honey as well as the mushroom & french onion mascarpone came out still bubbling and had an indescribable depth of flavor & texture. Cocktails were on point, service was fun friendly & helpful. Got tipped off to this place by a friend who raved about the talent of Executive Chef Scott McDonald, and to say we were blown away would be an understatement. Overall - Massoni is a MUST TRY. Outstanding meal, outstanding experience.

New Year’s Eve 4 course meal:

2 Oysters! Yes, TWO! Really!?!

Wonderful Lamb Risotto

2-3 oz strip steak- Yes, 2-3 oz on NEW YEARS EVE !!!
We saw a typical huge strip steak passing by en route to room service- at least FOUR times the size of our portion—Not Fair!

Finally- dessert was wonderful and out of this world great!

Decided to get to the restaurant early to escape the crowds and discovered free wine and snacks in the bar! Staff was friendly and helpful. Dinner was tastier and more interesting than we expected. Especially enjoyed the lamb and polenta raviolis and the warm mushroom and kale salad. Worth a repeat visit!

It was very quiet when my friend and I had brunch here, only two - three other tables occupied. The waitress pointed in the direction of the tables so I seated myself while waiting for my friend. Took another waitress maybe five minutes to say hi and bring water. The staff were very friendly and explained my breakfast pizza would take a little longer to cook than other items on the menu. The food was great. The venue and decor is fun. Would be interested to see the vibe when its full.
