The doyennes of Midtown Village — chef Marcie Turney and partner Valerie Safran — have a runaway hit with this wood-fired Mediterranean wine bar, a stylish hub of urban rustic chic that radiates rare energy and vibrant seasonal dishes.
From the top-notch pizzas to the smart service, affordable wine list, and, especially, Turney’s spirited take on Med flavors, Barbuzzo’s affordable small plates capture the casual sophistication of the day.
The decadent salted caramel budino (available in take-out packs) has no doubt been the downfall of many a New Year’s resolution.
Main drawbacks? The cramped seating and formidable din.
