When the neighborhood institution of Grace's Marketplace opened it's adjoining trattoria 6 years ago, the Doria family set out to allow it's immense customer base to enjoy their fresh food in a formal restaurant setting. Consisting of two large rooms, the front "bar room" welcomes guests for both the lunch and dinner service. The dining rooms are ensconced in layered brick, adding charm to the already warm and welcoming space. Curtains hang from the large windows in the back room, and pictures of the Doria family, spanning generations, adorn the walls.
Executive Chef Joseph Trama's Southern Italian cooking has given diners in this rustic, Old World environment a taste of life in the old country. Honing his skills at other top New York City eateries, Chef Trama is quick to recommend his house specialties of Fettucini with lobster, herbs, and wild mushrooms, and his Chilean Sea Bass, cooked in an olive-plum tomato sauce. There is also a wide range of homemade brick oven pizzas, as well as an extended selection of grilled steak and chops that compliments the menu's diversity. The dessert menu offers something for every palate, whether it be the warm pecan square, deep dish apple pie, or the chocolate banana tart with caramel gelato. A selection of wines from Italy and New Zealand round out the dining experience.
Grace's Trattoria, while largely neighborhood based, has recently become more of a destination spot for all New York City diners.
