Mario batali and long-time restaurant partner Joe Bastianich bring the Italian love for seafood to New York with ESCA. The kitchen belongs to the award-winning Dave Pasternack, who brings in fresh seafood daily from around the world, or from his own morning catch.
Simple-yet-elegant dishes are found across the menu, and the highlight dish of most experiences is the Crudothe Italian version of sushi. Daily selections can be enjoyed a la carte or added onto the tasting menu.
