Australians have a way of making an impact on the NYC foodie scene. Just last week we reported on a popular Australian bakery making their way to the Big Apple and now, Jason Scott- the man behind some of the hippest restaurants and bars in the land down under- will be opening his first U.S. restaurant in NYC.
This November, Gran Tivoli will be opening at 406 Broome Street, between Lafayette Street and Cleveland Place. This all-day Italian restaurant will be similar to Scott’s Australian restaurants especially in the cocktail department. According to Gourmet Traveller, Gran Tivoli’s dining room will seat 120 people with an additional 140-seat bar in the basement. It will be open all day, from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. and will feature a simple Italian menu.
Apparently, the massive downstairs bar will be designed to look like a wine cellar with a cocktail program similar to that of Scott’s Baxter Inn in Sydney but unlike the Sydney location, will also feature a sit down dinner service.
We’re excited to see how the place turns out- if we ever get a reservation!
