Inspired by the flavors and textures of rustic Italian cuisine, Ristorante Asellina brings delectable dining to NYC's bustling Flatiron District. The menu was created by executive chef Marco Porceddu, a native of Sardinia, Italy, and he blends the essential ingredients of organic and authentic Italian fare with the sexy design aesthetic of the new restaurant. The two-story-high main bar area features an earthy tile floor, a fireplace, copper ceilings and a terracotta wall. Glowing bulbs dot the ceiling, giving the space a warm glow. The garden patio fashions an urban jungle from greenery and moss.
