Executive Chef Riccardo Orfino comes from a decennial experience in starred fine dine restaurants. His first great opportunity came at the age of 23, when he started working at 2 Michelin Stars restaurant Il Luogo di Aimo and Nadia in Milan. Chef Orfino moved to New York and started working as Executive chef at Eataly’s Osteria della Pace, where he understood in depth the American market and, most of all, the beauty of being Italian in a country that loves Italian products.
Restaurateur Emanuele Nigro has a clear vision of his business. When he opened Osteria 57, he knew that he wanted to offer a cuisine enriched by his travels and life experiences. Inspired by ancient philosophy, Ayurvedic teachings and shamanic knowledge, he envisioned a food concept that is constantly evolving while following the seasons produce and inspired by the medicine wheel. To do so, he needed a dream team that he found in his partner Chef Riccardo Orfino.
Osteria 57 follows a vision based upon the belief that our experiences are interconnected to the point that what we eat, the wine we drink, and the atmosphere around us, can facilitate and support the flourishing of our souls. The ambience at Osteria reflects this vision. The beautiful location has 3 cozy rooms, 2 bars and one private outdoor table for an unforgettable romantic brunch. Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, on 10th street right off 6th avenue, the space is tastefully decorated and suitable for private events.MENU
A Bar is a sacred place. A place where to share life stories and where encounters happen. Emanuele and Riccardo are aware of this, and have recreated a refined and cozy bar inside Osteria where customers can either find themselves or get temporarily lost while listening to Wael, the charismatic Lebanese mixologist, that escaped the matrix.
Each selected alcohol brand at Osteria’s bar is committed to safeguarding the planet through direct actions and international campaigns. A bar with a soul. You wouldn’t suspect how many liquor brands have embarked on a path of awareness and respect for our beloved planet. That’s how Osteria likes it.COCKTAILS MENU
