Maialino is a Roman-style trattoria located at the Gramercy Park Hotel overlooking the park itself. Chef Nick Anderer and restauranteur Danny Meyer have developed an experience that, while reminiscent of rustic Italian cuisine, is also relevant to the urban New York scene. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, and comfortable and the food follows suit.
The weekend brunch is especially good with poached egg and porchetta sandwiches or uova al contadino, which is two poached eggs served alongside Brussels’ sprouts and turnips. The word maialino in Italian means ‘little pig’ and the heart of the menu is pork. From the well-done bucatini all’amartriciana to the favorite among carnivores, the maialino al forno, Maialino does pork like no other Italian restaurant in New York.
