SPRING 2017 - Chef, restaurateur and cookbook author Scott Conant debuts Fusco, his first solo New York City restaurant in nearly a decade. Named for his grandmother Carminella Fusco, who embodied old-world hospitality, the restaurant is located in the former Veritas space in the bustling Gramercy neighborhood, offering an upscale approach to Italian cuisine in an elegant setting.
Fusco evokes a warm and welcoming vibe reminiscent of one's own home. A sophisticated bar and high-top seating area opens into an intimate dining room, where guests gather in cozy banquettes over Conant's house-made pastas and Italian fare, served with a thoughtful selection of new and old world wines. Suspended above, chandeliers add a gilded glint to the softly lit space.
Scott Conant brings a deft touch and unwavering passion to creating culinary experiences with thoughtful hospitality and soulful cuisine. He is the chef and owner of newly opened Mora Italian, a modern osteria in Phoenix, AZ and The Ponte, a contemporary Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, as well as Fusco in New York City’s Gramercy Park. His other ventures include Scarpetta in Miami. Scott has published three cookbooks and is a frequent guest judge on Food Network’s Chopped and Beat Bobby Flay.
