I had the opportunity to dine at Mangia, NYC at the location on Madison Ave. Mangia, NYC offers a lovely menu of foods that are literally from farm to table. The menu offers pizzas, salads, sandwiches and main course entrees. All desserts are baked on premise. The downstairs offers a variety of food to take out. You have a lovely salad bar, fresh made sandwiches, pizza and so much more. The sit down dining, is the upstairs loft. The loft is upscale and the tables are for 2, 4 or six. It has a bar with wine and beer. It is a very cozy yet modern look.
The chicken Cobb salad was so fresh and loaded with fresh farm ingredients kale, chicken, bacon, cherry tomatoes and so much more was fantastic served with the house dressing. From the grill, I had the Grilled Branzino. It was served with two sides. I had the whipped cauliflower and mashed sweet potatoes. The Filet Mignon was so tender. It was served with mushrooms, roasted veggies and roasted fingerling potatoes. The dessert menu was just amazing. The pear tart was fabulous. The crust was flaky and the cream was superb. the NY cheesecake was fluffy and rich. The macarons were just fabulous. The vanilla and raspberry were so flavorful. These were the best macarons that I ever had. All of the baking is done on premise.
Upon entering the restaurant, I was greeted by a lovely hostess and taken to a table, in the upstairs loft. My server was so delightful. Her knowledge of the menu and her personality made my dining experience very enjoyable. All of the people working in Mangia, NYC really enjoy what they were doing and were so kind to the patrons. The service that I had was just wonderful. I can't wait to go back to Mangia,NY. It is in a great location between the theater district and Penn Station.
