So far, 2021 has been a big year for Italian chef Antonio Salvatore. First came a Michelin star for La Table d’Antonio Salvatore au Rampoldi, his intimate five-table gourmet eatery in the former cigar lounge of Monaco’s historic Franco-Italian restaurant, Rampoldi. Now Salvatore – along with the backing of the Monte Carlo Hospitality Group – has set his sights stateside opening his first US restaurant: Casa Limone, in Manhattan.
Just a stone’s throw from Rockefeller Center, salvatore’s US debut leaves the Monegasque and French influences of Rampoldi at the door. Casa Limone is all about the bright and brimming flavors of Southern Italy. Paying homage to the Mezzogiorno cuisine he was reared on in the region of Basilicata and its ingredient – rich neighbors, the young chef aims to transport the sights, smells and tastes of his homeland to East 49th Street.
