“Our menu dives into the richness of all the seas of the world”

It would be hard to find a better location than Marea. Situated on the south side of New York's Central Park, Marea attracts worldwide gourmets thanks to its exquisite Italian-inspired seafood and elegant yet relaxed setting. The menu, by Chef Michael White, starts off with delicate crudo and continues with pastas like fusilli with red wine braised octopus and bone marrow. A selection of composed fish and meat dishes follow, with award-winning desserts to finish. Part of the joy of Marea, meaning "tide" in Italian, is its stunning decor. Crisp white tablecloths, a dramatic onyx bar and stunning lacquered rosewood paneling, envelope guests with a modern comfort devoid of its cool reputation.
