For half a dozen years, chef/owner Andrea Frizzi has been watching over Il Posto, his traditional Italian trattoria crammed between other bars and restaurants along East 17th Avenue. But his restaurant stands out. The dining room is alive with bodies, light and noise; the action in the open kitchen is entertaining to watch; and the always-new menu – listed on a single sheet of paper – may be small, but it includes dishes that can be brilliant. (The risotto – made to order – and calamari never disappoint.) Although there have been some changes over the years, what hasn’t changed is the kitchen’s commitment to technique, its exquisite sourcing, and the dominant presence of Frizzi. Though no longer behind the burners, he stands guard in the busy corridor between open kitchen and tables, making sure that Il Posto lives up to its commitment of serving classic Italian cuisine.
Il Posto offers a truly cosmopolitan experience in a vibrant, hip space. Glance into the open air kitchen as Milanese chef/owner Andrea Frizzi prepares dishes inspired from Northern Italy and the resident sommelier ensures the perfect compliment for your meal. The ever-changing menu features local organic produce and meats with seafood flown in daily.
