Serafina on Broadway and 77th, they have plans to open in Tokyo, Moscow, and Mumbai, spreading the taste of Italy with authentic Italian ingredients to all corners of the globe. The opening party was a melee of attractive, well-dressed, Italian-speaking guests who mingled and munched on pretty pastas and thin-crust black truffle pizza. Festivities began with a pasta-cutting ceremony, performed by the Consul General of Italy (who surprisingly happened to be a woman) Natalia Quintavalle. Gigi, a high-energy electric violinist entertained the crowd. Serafina UWS will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I predict this will be a popular spot, because of its great location, comfortable vibe, and oversized banquettes. If Italian is not enough for you, attached to this venue is Geisha Table, a 23-seat eatery featuring sushi and an extensive sake list. I shall return... see more photos from the night at this link.
