Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich have swapped the white-tablecloth restaurant for more casual and interactive dining at the new Manzo, officially open to the public inside Eataly in the Flatiron on March 31.
Diners will be able to watch the goings-on in the glass-enclosed butchering room as well as choose cuts to order, much like they do in an old-fashioned butcher shop, with a say in how it’s trimmed and thickness. And of course, there’s a broad price range. “Big shots can spend $130 on a Fiorentina for two,” said Batali, though most of the menu is under $30. Adam Hill is the chef de cuisine.
Over at the bar, half the space is dedicated to cocktails and snacks only, and the other offers the full restaurant menu. Vermouth is the star of the drink menu, with nearly 30 variations including tough-to-find options. Take a look around.
