Tomorrow, the One Group—owners of sceney but not exactly foodie spots STK and The Collective—will debut Asellina, a new Italian restaurant within the newly opened Gansevoort Park Hotel. The look is sleek, the food somewhat rustic with a selection of cured meats, pizzas, flatbreads, pastas, and entrees like veal chops and braised lamb shanks from Sardinian by way of Las Vegas chef Marco Porceddu. The bi-level space stretches into two dining rooms, a couple of lounge areas, and a large bar and includes leather-wrapped walls, a terra cotta brick mosaic wall, a fireplace and a large wrap around wine closet around the staircase. In total, with its outdoor cafe, the place seats a whopping 280 people.
