Locations: Brooklyn, Jersey City, Miami
Talde is the namesake restaurant of Chef Dale Talde—the first restaurant to solidify a lasting partnership with restaurateurs David Massoni and John Bush. The first location debuted in Brooklyn in 2012, with Jersey City following in 2014, and Miami in late 2015. Here, the menu features creative Asian-American cuisine that has been playfully dubbed “in-authentically Asian,” with a beverage menu of East-meets- West spirits, featuring seasonally-inspired cocktails. Signature dishes include Pretzel Pork and Chive Dumplings; Crispy Oyster-Bacon Pad Thai; and Korean Fried Chicken with Spicy Kimchi Yogurt, Grapes and Mint.
MASSONI / BARLO / THE HEIGHTS
Location: Arlo NoMad, Manhattan
Chef Dale Talde and his partners, David Massoni and John Bush, all of Three Kings Restaurant Group, make their first foray into Manhattan this year, opening three unique concepts inside the Arlo Nomad Hotel: Massoni, a full-service restaurant that serves “Inauthentic Italian” fare; BARlo, the 2nd floor bar and adjoining terrace; and The Heights, a seasonal rooftop bar and patio (The Heights will officially open for business in the Spring of 2017). At Massoni, diners have the option of breakfast, lunch or dinner, and are able to sample Chef Dale Talde’s “Inauthentic Italian” cuisine, featuring classic Italian dishes with multi-cultural flavors and ingredients. Think Arancini Balls but with biyrani-style rice, served with cool ranch raita and spicy tomato; and Malfalde with uni, serrano and smoked onion dashi. The cocktail program at Massoni is rooted in the classic cocktails of New York City. Like the food, the influence of Italian - American culinary traditions and flavors find their way into updated classics. The drinks take their names from the last stops of the different subway lines that run throughout the city. Massoni also offers an entirely Italian-focused wine program, consisting of about 15 white and 20-25 red. The offerings span all of Italy, including both traditional and more offbeat options, as well as several to choose from some of the smaller vineyards. On the beer front, both Italian and craft domestic brews are available.
