Eataly’s New Restaurant Brings Traditional Tuscan Cuisine to Lower Manhattan

Tuscany, Italy has come to Eataly, Lower Manhattan. 

The neighborhood outpost of the Italian food mecca recently opened the new marketplace and restaurant Firenze Ristorante Toscano & Bar. Its menu offers up classic cuisine of central Italy, along with an expertly crafted wine list and a bespoke cocktail program with an Italian twist. 

Firenze serves primarily traditional Tuscan fare such as cecina (a chickpea flatbread), ribollita (stewed beans, a staple comfort food in Tuscany) and bistecca alla Fiorentina (porterhouse steak with strict guidelines known only in Tuscany). The restaurant also offers a big selection of pastas, fish and chicken dishes. 

The wine list features more than 300 selections representing the vineyards of Tuscany; the cocktail list honors the region too with drinks named after landmarks, as well as a menu of martinis made with only Italian ingredients. The eatery hopes you’ll round out your meal in the traditional Tuscan way: with some dessert wine and selections from the dessert cart.  

Visit the restaurant’s website for menus or to book a table.
