Blending the welcoming charm of a traditional Italian restaurant with the structured elegance of the most notable NYC destinations, Bar Cicchetti by Fabio Viviani will be a perfect addition to the resurgence of the hip central Chelsea neighborhood.
The name itself, meaning “to share,” encourages guests to connect with one another over a reinvented selection of Italian crowd favorites and refined cocktails.
Occupying the ground floor of the luxurious new Motto Chelsea hotel, Bar Cicchetti is a contemporary eatery by celebrity chef, best-selling cookbook author, and TV personality Fabio Viviani.
Best known for his participation in Bravo’s Top Chef seasons 5 and 8 where he earned the coveted “Fan Favorite” title, Fabio’s on-screen appearances and off-screen successes have propelled him to become one of the most influential culinary and hospitality names in the industry.
Set to open on January 18th, Bar Cicchetti will offer seasonally inspired dishes, including elevated takes on Viviani’s favorite comfort food classics, as well as craft beer and cocktails.
“We are thrilled to make our Fabio Viviani Hospitality footprint in the Chelsea neighborhood. Carving out a space in NYC’s bustling restaurant scene is truly an honor – we set out to create a restaurant that amplifies our voice, but also humbly fits into the city’s landscape seamlessly,” says Fabio Viviani, Owner of Bar Cicchetti.
“Building a restaurant centered on sharing and connection is exactly what we all need in 2022, and we’re looking forward to hosting you and your loved ones this year.”
Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, and late-night drinks, the menu offers authentic, thoughtfully-prepared Italian crowd favorites alongside dishes inspired by Chef Fabio’s childhood in Italy, such as:
To accompany the Italian fair, the beverage program includes an extensive yet refined list of traditional and creative cocktails – such as a Manhattan Italiano and BC Spritz – that is sure to please even the most discerning palates.
Coupled with a wine selection that celebrates both the old and new worlds, Bar Cicchetti offers a unique experience of all that NYC has to offer.
