“We always believed that as long as we put all of our energy into creating a flawless dining experience for our customers, in time we would be known for just that.” Executive chef Michael Cetrulo had this to say of his 2000 New York opening of Scalini Fedeli in the former Bouley space. With his exceptional standards and formal training in some of the finest Michelin-rated restaurants in Europe, Cetrulo set out to create a modern and eclectic dining experience. Grounded in Italian roots but highlighted by distinctive French influences, Scalini Fedeli manages to set Cetrulo’s culinary vision against the backdrop of an inviting and elegantly designed dining room.
Modern & eclectic Italian with a distinct French influence, Scalini NYC is quickly becoming famous for exceptional cuisine. The interior is graceful and dramatic with vaulted ceilings, turn-of-the century antiques, and romantic works of art evoking a distinctly Tuscan feel. On top of all this, a mention of Scalini Fedeli’s impeccable service creates the recipe for a unique and memorable dining experience.
