The team that brought us Aurora Brooklyn and Aurora Soho restaurants, have worked hard and crafted yet another eatery. Emporio, meaning “market” in Italian, is based in Nolita but is home to Italian and local cheeses, a raw bar, wood-fired pizzas, homemade pasta and traditional Roman entrees all in the likes of a cozy interior resembling a 1920’s Roman grocery store.

The 80-seat space is divided accordingly: a large eat-in bar area, walk through kitchen, large communal table, wood-burning brick oven and even an atrium-style sunroof. “In this economy, consumers are demanding value without sacrificing taste,” says Emporio co-proprietor Gaspare Villa. “Emporio appeals to New York’s affinity for delicious Italian cooking. We’re confident that the flexible menu, combined with a gorgeous, rustic setting and the hip Nolita location will build a loyal following.”

Signature dishes include squash blossoms with mozzarella & anchovies; tonnarelli cacio and pepe; grilled lamb spiedini, ceci beans and rosemary; and frascati braised local rabbit with rosemary and taggiasca olives. But if your feeling a little thirsty, the beverage list is focused on Italian and small artisanal breweries – wine flights are offered in addition to a wide selection of wines by the glass.

Emporio
231 Mott Street (Btwn. Prince and Spring)
212.966.1234
