NEW YORK, NY – Recently Opened Hell’s Kitchen Restaurant Tavola, formerly the famous Manganaro’s Grosseria Italiana, is quickly drawing New York City big shots and celebrities in for lunch and dinner on a regular basis. Over the past week, sightings included Alec Baldwin, seated in the popular window booth with his guest. Gina Gershon cozied up in the back of the restaurant near the dual wood burning ovens, while Mikhail Baryshnikov made his regular appearance for his weekly dinner. NYC Mayor front runner Madame Speaker Christine Quinn enjoyed her first visit, assuring the staff it was a first of many meals to come.
While the authentic Sicialian, Puglian and Roman regional dishes and old world charm has foodies and celebrities alike spellbound, Owner/Chef Nick Accardi states that his handcrafted, wood-burning ovens made from Mount Vesuvius volcanic clay imported from Naples, Italy even has Celebrity Chefs stopping by to cook with him. “Culinary Bad Boy” Chef Chris Nirschel (Food Network Star and Chopped All Stars) stopped in last week to cook Branzino and Pizza with Accardi. Since its opening, Hell’s kitchen (season 10) Chef Clemenza Caserta, has filmed several cooking demos at Tavola. Chef/Owner Nick Accardi takes pride in sharing the excitement his oven brings to fellow members of the Culinary World and has invited a few world renown Chefs to break bread with him who will be appearing at Tavola in Hell’s Kitchen, over the next Month.
Tavola is located at 488 Ninth Ave, NYC 212-273-1181 www.TavolaHellsKitchen.com
