Set in New York’s historic Little Italy, Gelso & Grand brings the concept of authentic Italian food to life. Its ersatz industrial design embodies the restaurant’s menu, with the red brick walls reflecting the rustic authenticity of its wood-fired brick oven.
What’s more, the restaurant is thoughtfully placed on Mulberry Street, a historical landmark where the freshest and finest ingredients were sourced when the first wave of Italian immigrants arrived in the 1840s. And true to the location’s heritage, Gelso & Grand’s pasta is all hand-rolled in-house, and made with the finest raw ingredients in the city.
