New Restaurants Opening in NYC

Thrillest 09/28/2022

Since opening in 2019 in Williamsburg, Ainslie—the multi-hyphenate concept that melds a beer garden and wine bar with an Italian restaurant—has been a popular go-to for group hangs and brunch dates. Now, its team (who also own Osteria Cotta on the Upper West Side and Carroll Place in Greenwich Village) is expanding their portfolio with a Manhattan outpost in Lower Manhattan’s Bowery. Staying true to its predecessor’s roots and helmed by John DeLucie (Waverly Inn), the eatery/bar will serve up Italian classics like wood-fired pizzas and a range of pasta dishes such as Cacio e Pepe and Linguini Vongole. Within the 20,000-square-foot space, guests will also find foosball, shuffleboard, and a subterranean lounge called The Underground (slated to open later this fall).
