Dale Talde, David Massoni, and John Bush officially opened their Italian-inspired Manhattan restaurant Massoni today. The opening is part of four projects the Three Kings Restaurant Group is opening inside the newly opened Arlo Hotel on East 31st Street. In addition to the restaurant, there’s a second floor lounge dubbed Barlo, a seasonal rooftop bar with views of the Empire State Building called The Heights (which will open in the spring), and a grab-and-go counter inside the lobby known as the Bodega.
Currently, the hit-making team behind Talde is only serving breakfast at Massoni, with plans to launch dinner service on Monday, November 21. On the breakfast menu are options like polenta pancakes with prosciutto, a breakfast pizza, and a grain bowl with n’duja and a fried egg. When dinner launches next week, expect pasta dishes like campanelle with octopus puttanesca; mafalde with uni and serrano; and pappardelle with blue crab. A variety of pan pizzas including one topped with sweet fennel sausage and mozzarella are available by the pie for dinner at Massoni, and by the slice at Bodega. Check out the breakfast menu below as well as drafts of the dinner and bodega menus. If you happen to stop by, be sure to let us know what you think.
