Storico has great location off of Central Park in the NY Historical Museum. Staff is attentive but not overly so. Cocktails are creative. Main entrees are a foodies delight: simple but well prepared. Overall ambience is casual upscale and friendly vibe.0

My sister and I went for lunch during restaurant week. The bread that came with the appetizer was burned, and the great waiter was gracious about getting me a new one but they shouldn’t have put it on the plate in the first place. My sister asked for her burger to be done medium, and it was still pink. She didn’t ask to have them fix it, although I imagine they would have. The waiter was the high point: kind and personable. My risotto was OK but forgettable. The tiramisu was excellent.

Storico is the perfect pre-Shakespeare in the Park dinner location. The food was great. We happened to hit Restaurant Week so the value was excellent. Our server Lucky was a delight. The decor is a little Scandinavian modern and it’s a little noisy, but it works with nice high ceilings.

The NYHisorical Society makes a captive audience for Storico. Each time we have eaten there we are sorry we didnt make more of an effort to find another restaurant in the neighborhood. The food is not bad, but the sound level is deafening, the wait staff is pleasant but incompetent (our party of 7 (including 3 children) waited over an hour for our lunch on an ordinary Tuesday) and it is not a very good value. Honoestly, I dont know why we keep coming back. Hope springs eternal. The NYHistorical Society is the big pull.

Absolutely wonderful eatery!! Six of us had a great birthday brunch for a family member on Sunday. The menu has lots of great options! Each dish was incredibly tasty. My favorite was the baked eggs - not what I envisioned, but delicious and divine. As for the service, it's been a while since I have experienced such a competent and gracious wait staff - very attentive and helpful. Overall the staff was so flexible and accommodating; all was set up when we arrived; we brought in a balloon center piece which was fine with them; a Happy Birthday singing telegram arrived; and, it all went smoothly thanks to the staff.

As for price and ambiance - can't be beat. Bright and cheery - a bit on the small side but manageable, fair amount of chatter, but not ideal for a quite dinner date. I was amazed when the check arrived - incredibly reasonable for the 6 of us who had more than the entrees (coffees, wine, deserts, etc.).

The added benefit was its location in the Historical Society of NY. Post brunch we all went to the exhibits and stayed until closing - end to a perfect day!

We went there on Restaurant Week and had a $58 per person 3-course dinner with wine pairing. The food was delicious, the waiters were super helpful, professional and kind. The place, inside New York Historical Society, is one of the most beautiful and stylish in the city. We really enjoyed our experience.

We went to Storico based on a recommendation from the Public Theater for pre-theater dining.
It is really a great choice. Both our entrees were very good and our appetizer was a fun seasonal choice. Our only concern was leaving on time for the show, and getting a check was a little time consuming.
Other than that, I am happy for the recommendation and enjoyed the experience immensely.

while the ambiance is pleasant and the food is good, the noise level at lunchtime is poor in that there is nothing in the room to absorb sound and the tables are fairly close together so it is hard to carry on a conversation. for this reason we will not be back. too bad. they really should do something about this.

The food was absolutely delicious and interesting. Many typical entrees were made special by adding unusual extras or substitutes. One complaint - there were not a lot of options for those trying to watch their calories. A few more healthy options would be great.

I really wanted to love this place. It's in the Historical Society building and the space is gorgeous. We were there for restaurant week and I appreciated that they were serving items off their regular menu and not special cheap dishes. That said, the food was uneven. Our appetizers -- the Watermelon & Tomato Panzanella and the buraata were both very good. The Branzino was terrific -- well cooked and nicely flavored, but the risotto was less than the sum of its parts and surprisingly bland. We both had the strawberry meringue, which was fine but not special. (I had expected a meringue base or circle filled with strawberries. Instead, the meringue was served in small (maybe 3/4" x 3/4") rough squares and mixed with the sweetened strawberries. They would have done so much more with those ingredients. All in all, I'd go again if I were in the neighborhood, but it's not a destination restaurant.

The food was great and fresh and you could taste that the restaurant uses quality ingredients. The best part of our meal, I must say, was our wonderful server/waitress! I cannot remember her name (she is blonde and super friendly). She was very attentive to every table she served without being over-attentive (did not hover) and had a great sense of humor!!! I expect great service when dining out, but her sense of humor and playfulness made the restaurant outright fun, which was especially nice during lunch time.

Excellent Restaurant week menu...great selection and wine pairings actually were two regular glasses (not the 3oz variety). It is a lovely setting and service was very attentive.

wish their regular menu was as good (keep it simple stupid)...hadn't been there in a while after a couple of bad experiences (poor service, running out of dishes, and esoteric selections.

I love this little restaurant for Sunday brunch. It has an eclectic and fun menu. The omelet of the day is usually very good and the wine list is perfect for Sunday brunch. The restaurant is located in the New York Historical Society building, which is a fabulous gem of a museum, offering great perspectives on both NY and U.S. history. Brunch at Storico and a visit to the NY Historical Society=a Sunday that can’t be beat!!

Storico is inside the New York Historical Society, which is well worth an extra hour or two before or after your meal. Casual, bright, and pretty quick with an interesting menu and great service. Perfect place to meet in the city for lunch, which is what we did. I had the chicken part sandwich - it was different than any other. Very light with lots of different tastes, and no red sauce. Highly recommend.
