SEGAFREDO ZANETTI ESPRESSO CAFE
October 2, 2012
Wine and coffee hold sway at this new, Village eatery. Launced by Bari and Amrinder Kang of The Brothers Kang Group, the recognized Italian espresso bar with gourmet coffee beverages, starts out as an eye-opener and then loops into a late night lounge.
Founded by Massimo Zanetti, the NYC venue allows guests to dine in the lounge specialty area, created by renowned designer Antonio Di Oronzo. The extensive menu serves up modern Italian cuisine with global influences from mussels and oysters to a wide range of pastas, bruschettas, cured Italian meats and tantalizing entrees. The menu also has comfort food options such as four-cheese Mac 'N' Cheese with pancetta, the trademarked Segafredo Burger, an 8 oz sirloin burger with all the Italian trimmings accompanied with parmesan truffle fries, as well as the always-popular "sliders."
This is a fine addition to the active Village area, and offers one more opportunity to savor a morning hit of caffeine Italian style and return for easy, cooling down with wine and some light fare.
