Torrisi Bar & Restaurant
Before there were Carbones in Vegas and Hong Kong, there was a place called Torrisi Italian Specialties on Mulberry Street. That spot closed in 2015—but with the opening of Major Food Group’s Torrisi Bar & Restaurant, things have come full circle. Located a few blocks from the original Torrisi, this place feels like a victory lap. It has all the pageantry you expect from the people who brought you the Midtown duck press, and it’s in a huge space with sky-high ceilings and crushed velvet booths. The menu is mostly Italian, but some of the most worthwhile dishes—like a pastrami-style short rib—take inspiration from the surrounding neighborhood. Reservations are already tough, but the big bar area up front is reserved for walk-ins.
