Sirio Ristorante is located at 151 East 58th Street in New York. Sirio is named for legendary restaurateur Sirio Maccioni, who opened the famous restaurant, Le Cirque, in 1974. Managing Partner Carlo Mantica tells us that Sirio opened five years ago as a response towards the trend of more casual dining. Patrons of Sirio often share appetizers with the table and then order their own main course. Sirio Ristorante offers classic Italian dishes with a contemporary presentation. Start your meal off with an appetizer, like Il Tagliere Di Sirio, a selection of cured and smoked meats and cheeses, or Fiore Di Bufala, which contains buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto san daniele, tomato variations, and basil pesto. Another popular choice is the Polipo, which is grilled octopus, saffron potatoes, salsa verde, pickled onions, and smoked piquillo pepper vinaigrette. Pasta dishes are a signature feature of Sirio. A customer favorite is the Pasta Carbonara, topped with a quail egg. Another delicious option is the Tagliatelle Nero, a squid ink pasta, with jumbo lump crab, arugula pesto, and preserved lemon. For your entree, try a hearty dish like the Vitello, a grass-fed veal chop, with butternut squash puree, fingerling potatoes, baby fall vegetables, and brown butter-rosemary sauce, or the Bistecca, which is a wet-aged ny strip steak, fingerling potatoes, bell pepper agrodolce. Whatever you order, be sure to leave room for a sinful dessert. One tasty Italian classic is the Duetto Sirio, a mocha tiramisu cake and frozen chocolate souffle affogato, topped with sambuca foam.The restaurant also offers a Prix Fixe tasting menu. There is a full bar with an extensive wine list. If you are looking for a great meal while in New York, Sirio Ristorante is highly recommended.
