As one would expect from the birthplace of red sauce cuisine, all five boroughs of NYC are abundantly packed with Italian restaurants! While it might be a little too much, somehow even an overwhelming task, choosing your favorite whenever you have to quell your cravings for a little bit of Italy, we’re ready to make that a cinch for you. We’re sure you’re familiar with old-school tried-and-tested spots, so we’ve got a scrumptious surprise just for you, epicurean with a taste of fine Italian food. The breath of fresh air on the fine dining scene - Il Fiorista, is an Italian restaurant (and, oh, so much more) that manages to stand out from the boroughs’ standard red-sauce spots, and, today you’re going to read all about it!
The soothingly luminous Il Fiorista was created in 2019 to showcase and celebrate the beauty of nature in every way imaginable. Once you step inside the enchanting luster of “the Florist,” you will be greeted with the inspiriting ambiance of freshly cut flower arrangements towering over tables - doing a terrific job of preparing you for the irresistible aromas, flavors, and atmosphere that’s bound to stick with you for days to come! There’s so much to love about Il Fiorista, a multi-purpose space in NoMad that combines an exquisite Italian restaurant, floral boutique, and educational center all in one. By conducting workshops regarding bouquet-making or culinary uses of flowers, Il Fiorista fosters a culture of incorporating a bit of spring with their stunning edible blooms into your daily life. Needless to say, the signature flowers find a home in every carefully-crafted dish and drink on the menu of Il Fiorista’s restaurant, too.
