Barchetta

Barchetta, Italian for ‘little boat’ captures the charms of the Mediterranean seaside. An Italian seafood trattoria, Barchetta is a partnership between Esca’s acclaimed Chef & Partner Dave Pasternack and John Meadow’s LDV Hospitality. Pasternack brings his passion of sourcing the freshest ingredients of the sea and expertise of Italian cuisine to Barchetta’s intimate yet bustling atmosphere inspired by the communal charm of the rustic trattoria experience. Barchetta provides a casual bar dining experience of Pasternack’s trademark crudo tastings or a feast of homemade pastas, seafood antipasti, and whole fish paired with an eclectic international wine list. Delivered with gracious, genuine hospitality, Barchetta brings la dolce vita to life in New York City.

"Barchetta is a solid neighborhood pasta crudo place. The sister to Esca is really good but somehow falls short of the taller, better looking sibling in the theater district."

"The crudo sampler is phenomenal. Really excellent service. The room is very nice and proximity to the Highline is great. The music could be a bit quieter because the restaurant acoustics aren't great so you have to speak very loudly."

"Chose this because we loved Esca years ago and this is the same chef.
Great dining experience. Had the crude sampler, amazing beet / goat cheese salad, pasta with bottarga (fish roe) and whole sea bass over thinly sliced potatoes. Every item was great, plus amazing bread and olives.
Fish the freshest one can imagine.
Wine list a bit pricey but excellent selections. We had an effervescent Italian wine Langhe Freisa, fun and delicious, drank it like soda pop.
Definite recommendation.

"Linguine with clams was salty and hanger steak had no flavor. I told the waiter that the linguine was too salty and his explanation was that the chef cooks the clams fresh in the shell hence they are briny and salty. Huh? I live a block away and wanted to like this place but unfortunately, I cannot recommend it."

"My husband and I went for brunch. The food was ok but the garnishment a were obscure and meager. It's almost as if you're at a steak restaurant where everything is extra, the vegetables, potatoes, etc., but at least you're getting a big steak to fill you up! They did bring us a couple of tasty buttermilk biscuits. All in all I would not recommend it for brunch. Perhaps someone else would like to try it for dinner."

"Made a reservation for 5pm and we were the only ones there because it was early and they just opened. However, it was a great! The food was delicious and service was very nice as well. We started with the buffalo mozzarella which cold have been better, followed by a short rib burger and the ravioli. Everything was cooked perfectly and would go back again."

"Yes, it was Mother's Day and therefore hectic, but the experience was close to parody. Floor manager explained that there would be a 15 minute delay due to change from brunch to dinner, BUT it was only when we went to the hosts, waiters and the manager after an hour and ten minutes that food arrived cold (imagine cold fried calamari) --and along with at best indifferently prepared appetizers. There was nothing to stave off hunger except bread and cocktail olives. Sigh. A lovely location is not an excuse for ignoring the details of dining."

"Looking for a good seafood restaurant and Barchetta had a very good selection. The oysters were very fresh as well as the sliced fish assortment. I tried all six types of raw fish ( Fluke, Steelhead, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Bluefish, Salmon) and enjoyed each one and was surprised that the bluefish tasted so good since I normally n=don't like Bluefish. I tried the recommended John Dory fish and it was prepared well, the texture was smoother instead of flaky for a flat fish. The meat on both side of the bone skeleton was easy to take off and there was not any loose bones to deal with. I did not try the pasta and deserts but will try them the next time I dine at Barchetta. Looking forward tp something new on the menu."

"Beginning with the warm foccaccio and the impressive wine list, we knew it would be a good evening. The grilled octopus was the best any of the 4 of us had ever tasted, and the portion was more than generous. The pork chop was ginormous and equally delicious, the John Dory moist and delicious, ditto the salmon. The wait staff was delightful, attentive but not intrusive. what more could you ask?
The noise level can be too much so if you prefer quiet, ask for a room in the back and upstairs.

"Went here on a Sunday afternoon around 5:30 p.m. a party of 4 (one child) and we were greeted promptly by the hostess and once seated the waiter came over. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions and we all loved our meal."

"Went in after visiting the High Line. Was expecting the typical Italian fare, but was pleasantly surprised by the black ink pasta with mussels which was excellent. If you partake, the home made limoncello is as good as any that you could get in Capri!"
