Brussel sprouts were delicious.
Vegetarian pasta yummy.
3 chicken plates were turned back because it has creamy polenta with butter in it and over the chicken and the 3 of us ordered chicken because it was plsin.
One got his chicken dish when we had to leave whom we invited so he didnt eat.
He said he would never return

Multiple visits. Convenient following public programs at NYHS. This night, arugula salad and Arctic char were delicious.

The dish with black truffle was tasteless I think the truffle was old and dried out. It was very expensive so one expects the truffle to have taste

Storico is a firm favorite. The food is always well-prepared and flavorsome, and the presentation reflects an attention to detail which goes beyond only the taste. The staff are friendly and helpful and the ambiance is a delight - such a beautiful and unusual setting.

After NYHS event the place was slammed but staff handled the rush with grace and aplomb. The room is beautiful and welcoming. The menu is brief but nicely curated. My duck salad was very good: the combo of smoked duck and a mild blue cheese was surprising in a good way. The rigatoni was a hair short of al dente—maybe that was a result of the rush? We enjoyed the meal and the place. Thought it a little pricey.

Storico is one of the best Museum restaurants in NYC. The ambiance is terrific and you don't feel cramped or bored with the surroundings. The food is terrific, well prepared and presented. The servers are polite, efficient and knowledgable. Food is moderately priced for NYC and the portions are ample.
The menu is eclectic with burgers, sandwiches, pastas, fish and fowl.
I was particularly impressed with the "non-meat burger" which was delicious and you could not tell the difference from the real burger.
After a tour of the museum or before it is a great and convenient treat.

Went for Sunday brunch. The setting is so pretty - the crisp white walls, the sunny yellow chairs and the collection of blue and white plates. The challah French Toast was excellent...moist and chewy. Really special. My husband had an omelette with salad greens and was really pleased. Our guest had the fig and prosciutto sandwich and was also happy. Afterwards we walked around the New York Historical Museum. Made for a perfect Sunday.

I just love this restaurant ... it's one of my favorites for lunch ... anytime I can get here I am thrilled ... the food is good: oh, that crispy zucchini!!! and the asparagus!!! Who needs anything more than a selection of the appetizers ... but push on through the menu because it's filled with soul-satisfying foods (everyone I know, however, wants them to add the whole egg to the frittata rather than just using the whites!!! kitchen listen up!!) You' ll love the atmosphere ... what a charming delightful place to share stories and time with friends ...

It's always appreciated when a museum has a good restaurant where you can take a break between viewings. That's why we are delighted that the food at Storico in the New York Historical Society is delicious and the staff so helpful. The bolognese was rich and spiced just right. And the burrata was fresh and flavorful. However, we were a little taken aback by the prices. A bowl of pasta was $22 and this isn't exactly Babbo. There are several appetizers that can easily be made into entrees by adding prosciutto or chicken, but even those can easily wind up over $20. You can, however, sit at the bar and have just coffee or a cold drink.

excellent service, very accommodating and knowledgeable bar tender/server. Excellent drink and wine choices.
Superior pasta dishes - in both cases a new take on a
standard dish. We were elated clean plate diners!

We arrived on time for a 12:30 lunch reservation for five people. We received our food order at 1:50 PM. The burrata and eggplant was inedible (slimey cold eggplant).
All this came as a surprise because prior visits for dinner were flawless. We were comped for the burrata and coffees when the entire experience warranted a full comp.
