New Neighbor: La Pecora Bianca

Lined with soft hues and pastel colors, Italian restaurant, La Pecora Bianca, welcomed their first customers for aperitivo and dinner in early August, serving local, wholesome Italian fareThe menu features locally sourced and seasonal ingredients, with vegetables, whole grains and pastas, sheep and goat’s milk dairy, and pasture-raised meats, sourced from Hudson Valley and surrounding area farms. Within days, the new restaurant by Mark Barak was ranked as Eater NY's hottest restaurants in August. 

The restaurant name means "The White Sheep" in Italian, and the sheep's repeated motif can be seen on the interior wallpaper's circular curls. The charming sheep branding was designed by Emily Oberman and the Flatiron District based Pentagram design team. The restaurant's design was based on inspirations from Italian farmhouses and modern country open kitchens. Located in the historic St. James Building, once home to the Havana Tobacco Company, the restaurant retains some of the building's historic features, such as a restored marble column and marble staircase. 

This week, the restaurant launched an all-day coffee program at their espresso bar, serving up an exclusive Italian blend, in collaboration with Toby's Estate Coffee. The traditional espresso bar service includes a glass of sparkling water and a biscotti on a silver tray. 

Espresso Bar opens at 7:00 a.m. Mondays through Fridays and at 8:00 a.m. on the weekends. Apertivo and dinner service is from 5:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. daily. Stay tuned for all-day dining.
