MEET THE CHEF:
Trained in Naples, Italy, Chef Michele Iuliano is the man behind the ovens at Luzzo’s Group: a collection of southern Italian restaurants that serves up creative spins on classic Neapolitan cuisine. Best known for his first NYC restaurant Luzzo’s Pizzeria which has amassed a cult-following in the East Village since 2004. Since then, Michele has received many awards and accolades and opened several other restaurants in New York including Ovest Pizzoteca in Chelsea in 2010 and DaMikele in Tribeca in 2011. Together with his wife Anisa Iuliano, they introduced Gnoccheria in 2016 to bring inventive fresh homemade gnocchi to the East Village. Following a huge success, they welcomed Gnoccheria Wall Street to their family of restaurants.
ABOUT THE RESTAURANT:
Gnoccheria was first introduced in 2016 to the East Village as a daring, yet simple concept serving fresh hand-rolled Gnocchi with a creative twist. Since then, it has become a revolutionary pasta institution drawing eaters from all over the world. On the heels of its success, owners Anisa Iuliano and her husband Executive Chef Michele Iuliano opened Gnoccheria Wall Street at 100 Broad Street in an old bank clearing house where the open air kitchen flows into a uniquely appointed dining room with a 40 ft. marble cocktail bar and vaulted ceilings. Private booths and a separate party room that offers intimacy for business gatherings, romantic date nights or special occasions. The menu embodies Chef Michele’s eccentric creativity featuring fresh homemade Gnocchi alongside specialty burrata, wood-fired pizza and a refined selection of prime meats and wild caught fish.
