With a history that goes back to 1988, Bistango Restaurant NYC is well known on Manhattan’s East Side for its finely blended flavors and warm hospitality. When you first step into Bistango the place may seem smaller than it looks from the outside. But by the time you take your place at the table you realize that this isn’t a problem.

Did Anyone Say Brunch?
At the Bistango Restaurant NYC the highlight is the food. You can get Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner in the Italian style. Start your day with a graceful Cavalo Nero salad and soup with kale, toasted almonds, apple, pecorino, golden raisins, red wine vinaigrette and grilled shrimp that is fulfilling without being too heavy. You’ll also fall for smaller but savory dishes like mushroom toast with wild mushrooms, crème fraiche, and fried egg, or Linguini Carbonara with pancetta, spinach, and egg yolks.
If you don’t have time for Brunch, you may as well show up for Lunch. You don’t want to miss the simple pleasure of Carciofini alla Romana with parsley, pan roasted baby artichokes, lemon and butter or the rich texture of Entree Special Salmone with grilled Scottish salmon, spinach, lemon, butter sauce. Wash it all down with a Chardonnay Tormaresca or a Montepulciano Brecciarolo from some of Italy’s famed wine regions.
To enjoy the best that Bistango Restaurant NYC has to offer, you want to bring your partner or your friends to dinner. Brazato with Creekstone Farms short rib, red Belgium endive, gnocchi, melted Fontina, is a treat. But if you’d rather go for Gluten-free, fresh stuffed pasta, you have plenty of options with delicious homemade sauces. If you’re not sure which, you might as well choose the nutritious the dairy-free Eggplant Ravioli.
Whether it’s early in the afternoon or late at night, with the deserts at Bistango Restaurant NYC you can’t go wrong. Go beyond Tiramisu and Cheesecakes and try lemon tart with blueberry compote and whipped cream, or head straight for the gluten-free Trisome with its crunchy chocolate chip crust and a fine mix of cashews, pecans, dates, agaves, and crushed berries.
