Recently, I had the pleasure of attending a press dinner at ATRIO Wine Bar & Restaurant, which offers innovative, Mediterranean cuisine in Lower Manhattan. Located in Conrad New York’s 15-story lobby, ATRIO features an open kitchen, a welcoming ambience, and semi-private and private dining spaces. The restaurant recently changed its menu to offer dishes that are perfect for the fall and winter seasons. Some of the current offerings may feature Roasted Beet Salad, House Made Ricotta Cavatelli, Bone-In Filet Mignon, and Honey and Yogurt Panna Cotta. Executive Chef Gerron Douglas and his team passionately create these locally sourced dishes.
In addition to the delicious cuisine, ATRIO has an impressive wine list. I enjoyed trying Loveblock, a pinot gris; Etude, a pinot noir; Silver Oak, a Cabernet Sauvignon; and Blanc des Blancs, a champagne. The restaurant offers an extensive assortment of champagne, white wines, and red wines. The staff at ATRIO is skilled at suggesting the best wine pairings to match its cuisine.
Lastly, I can’t get over the gorgeous decor at ATRIO! Classy wooden tables and floors, comfortable chairs, and plenty of windows fill up the restaurant. Glam, crystal curtains frame the windows. Even the open kitchen is very chic with a marble counter.
Definitely stop by and check out this inventive restaurant, which happens to be having a special New Year’s four-course meal. You will not be disappointed!
