Amazing option in the museum!
On the plus side, there is the charming room and the intriguing fact of eating inside the New York Historical Society. It is also commendable that it's a menu almost entirely without the clichés of high bourgeois Manhattan dining. The idea of small plates, the vague allusion to the cuisine of Venice (where one goes from bar to bar munching what are called cicchetti): very much worthy of praise. But the actual realization of things really failed to work on too many occasions. Great saor sauce but why put it on undercooked broccoli rabe; great idea to deep fry zucchini, but even after two tries they didn't seem to know how to do it. We wish this place were better than it now is; perhaps it will become so.
Excellent and thoughtful service, nice,light- filled, ambience, good food. I had a light lunch catchup with a friend and though a bit noisy at first (very well-patronized and busy) it quieted down and was good to talk. Our waiter was very solicitous and pleasant.
Superb food that won't break your diet, because the portions are so small you can't possibly gain any weight. I ordered flank steak which was perfectly seared with a umami crust and a warm tender red center: presented as a flower with 6 petals of ¼" thick by 2" long steak slices arranged around coulis core. My wife's pasta dish filled a creme brûlée dish and my daughter's salmon was the size of a deck of cards.
Entrees average $25, appetizers $15, drinks $14.
The restaurant is ideal when attending an evening at the NY Historical Society, as this area is otherwise a restaurant dessert. Just enjoy a large late lunch beforehand and bring a Platinum Card.
Second visit in as many weeks, neighborhood gem, excellent food and service
Went to Storico before a Civil War lecture at the NYHS. The food was very very good, certainly exceeded expectation for a small restaurant. Roasted Brussels sprouts were perfectly prepared and my strip steak was as well. Not a place for a fancy business dinner, but great for those in the neighborhood. Service was great.
great food and service. great venue. recommend it!
Very good food (great hamburger) and wonderful service. We were not rushed and could hear each other talk.
Great food, but limited selection makes this a bit of a one-hit wonder. Also, small portion sizes left my wife and I hungry after our meal.
Some flowers in the dining room would add a lovely touch of lively color
I loved Storico when it first opened. Then I thought it lost of bit of its quality and was also disappointed that they took the hamburger off the menu. So I hadn't been back in a while.
I'm so glad I gave it another shot. We had an excellent experience there last Saturday night: Superlative service from the manager and waiter and unusually delicious fresh food. Everything top-notch. Excellent value for money. I am so thrilled to have Storico in the neighborhood! Highly recommend.
This is a hidden neighborhood gem, excellent food, went for dinner on a snow storm night, great service and the location makes it interesting
The two of us had completely different dining experiences. My companion enjoyed his food very much. I did not. Specifically, I don't recommend ordering the foie gras torchon as it wasn't very good. Also, the order for one of my dishes wasn't processed (a "computer problem") until I asked where the food was. I think the problems are in the kitchen. Management was quite nice, however, about making up for this.
Handsome space. Good food and service. Can be a bit loud, but not oppressive. A bit on the expensive side for lunch.
Too many dishes with sauces that taste more or less the same....
I really enjoyed this restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice, relaxing and not noisy at all. The service was wonderful, they facilitated a special request with no problem and the food was very good. Amazing Brussel Spouts. I would look forward to going back.
The food was too salty. Both of our dishes tasted terrible.
Love Storico but would prefer more Classical soft music appropriate to the NYHS. Music was a bit disturbing when we were there
This was our first disappointing meal at Storico. The pasta with olive oil had a veritable pool of oil at the bottom of the dish. The second pasta dish had so much salt it was inedible. And, one of the pancakes was slightly burned on the bottom. Careless mistakes in a restaurant that was almost empty when we began our brunch on Sunday.
Great local option for a meal only or as part of a visit to a wonderful museum.
Exceeded my expectations for an "in-house" restaurant (Historical Society at 77th st.). Few choices but excellent choices at economical prices. All tasted very creative and satisfying. Would definitely return.
This was breakfast. Don't order the omelet unless you like a large slab of cooked eggs wrapped around a small amount of filling.
Otherwise food was very good.
Very accommodating. Great waiter. Good food. Lively lunch crowd.
Storico is a very special place-beautiful room- delicious food- effortless service. Every time I visit I am delighted with the experience. Wonderful server! Very charming.
Restaurant was just ok...if u want a quiet easy neighborhood meal..it fits the bill...food was ok..nothing bad..nothing to write home about.
excellent food, service and value, unique setting. the new menu is very appealing. my mixed drink as a bit too citrusy, but the waiter fixed it with great care when I asked about it. we'd come before, but not in a while, but we'll be back soon and often.
Great location for brunch with friends. Everyone impressed with their food and the service was great and very patient with our group.
This is the second time i lunched at Storico in the last few months. Both times the food was wonderful. Fresh, healthy and different. Be ready to try something new when you ear here and you won't be disappointed. It bright and inviting and busy. Don't expect a private quiet lunch!
I have eaten at the Storico several times before; it seemed like the menu may have changed somewhat but the food was as good as before! The service seemed a bit slow though.
We brought friends here because the restaurant is so pretty and near the museum we visited. Sadly, we were disappointed. There was a hair in my salad and my guest found a hair in his French fries. We brought this to the attention of the staff. Overall the food quality and kitchen standards need improvement.
Very very salty food and a bit heavy handed. The waiter was solicitous is a good way.
Fabulous dinner Tuesday evening after the lecture. The chicken, beef, cod all outstanding.
Service was friendly and considerate- always keeping us informed of the progress of our dinner.
Lucky was our server - simply spectacular, such a pleasure!
We, of course , will return.
Convenient location in Museum. We toured exhibit, had lunch and returned afterwards for the afternoon exhibits.
The lobster tagliatelle and the sea bass were both delicious. Very friendly service. The room is very pretty. Convenient for this museum or for American Museum of Natural history. Nice for latte and dessert as well. I wish they had more vegetarian options and pastas
Service was great. Wine options were good its opportunity to taste before ordering. Interesting small plates. Menu options change
Amazing! And server Ricardo was very kind
Our anniversary was acknowledged by chef in grand style.
Lucky was great at the bar. Very knowledgeable about the story of the restaurant and the menu. Food is outstanding!
Great service. Small portions but delicious.
Right next to the museum. I would go back again.
Excellent food and atmosphere! Highly recommended.
