Resto

Resto, French slang for a casual restaurant, opened its doors in 2007. Owner Christian Pappanicholas wanted to create a casual Gramercy Park neighborhood spot with bar and sidewalk seating that served Belgian fare. Executive chef Bobby Hellen’s menu emphasizes traditional French techniques, as well as nose-to-tail dining, a culinary philosophy made famous by British chef Fergus Henderson. Diners huddle over dark wood tables in a dimly lit room. Meat-centric dishes like côte de boeuf, poularde in half mourning, housemade charcuterie, and large format feast menus (with one week notice), can be paired with beer or wine. 

Insider Tip:

Resto’s sibling, The Canibal, is located two doors down. It’s a retail beer, butcher, and specialty goods store.
