The Interior

Upon entering the restaurant, you are greeted by the large and stunning bar right in the restaurant’s center. This is a perfect spot to try out one of the restaurant’s many specialty cocktails or a glass of wine.

Just past the bar is a large formal dining room with tables and booths with windows looking out into the courtyard.

Large, captivating art pieces are spread throughout the restaurant. The art in Le Farfalle and The Toscano’s New York restaurant is created by Isaac Wexler-Mann, one of their previous team members.

The Menu

Come prepared, wanting to order a little bit of everything. Le Farfalle has an extensive menu of pasta, seafood, steak, salads, and appetizers. Pictured above is Chef Michael’s signature Agnolotti pasta. Chef Michael creates a different version of Agnolotti pasta at every restaurant he’s involved in. At Le Farfalle, the Agnolotti is a must-order item, featuring duck confit, funghi misti, and parmigiano reggiano. The appetizer shown above is the Asparagus featuring almond pesto, sweet pickled strawberry, creamy crushed cucumber yogurt, and dill.
