The vineyard life in Italy centers around the cascina, where friends and family enjoy food and drink, indulging in the finer aspects of the good life.
In the city, Cascina Ristorante brings the simplicity of the Italian countryside to Hell’s Kitchen. At the heart of Cascina sits a rounded stone and brick oven, while antique chandeliers, rustic woods, large-paned windows and an original wood beam ceiling create a subtle dynamic between elegance and warmth. The cuisine possesses the same balance of pastoral style and sophistication. With an emphasis on ingredients, Chef Gualtiero Carosi, who trained in Rome, highlights the original flavors of traditional country-style fare—top quality cheeses, fresh produce and hand-picked meats and fish. Evidence of Cascina’s superlative creations includes the signature dish Stinco d'Agnello al Forno, slow-roasted lamb shank seasoned with herbs and served with roasted potatoes. So, take a step off the fast-paced city life and step into Cascina, where the best company is accompanied by the best of the Italian countryside.
