Located in the historically landmarked Rockefeller Townhouses in Midtown, Il Gattopardo offers authentic Southern Italian cuisine for the most discerning of diners, augmented by a robust list of Italian wines and an unmatched level of hospitality and service.

Like something out of a Fellini film, Il Gattopardo, residing in the Rockefeller Townhouses in Mid-town West, offers authentic southern Italian cuisine in a sleek, mid-century modern dining room. The restaurant will offer a festive selection of Italian seasonal favorites for the holidays.

Christmas will include both specials and a la carte options. Among the holiday dishes are an ap-petizer of puntarelle (crispy Italian wild chicory) with lemon, anchovies, and extra virgin olive oil; an organic faro and porcini mushroom soup; risotto with clams and shaved red mullet “bottarga”; pan seared loin of lamb in red wine sauce and lentils; Dover sole broiled in extra virgin olive oil and lemon, served with winter caponata; and for dessert, Struffoli, a traditional Italian Christmas sweet.

For New Year’s Eve, the restaurant will be serving a variety of specials in addition to the a la carte menu. Specials will include appetizers such as a section of west coast oysters in a mi-gnonette sauce; a soup of organic farro and porcini mushrooms; pasta such as an artisanal ra-violi filled with lobster on its own sauce; entrees including traditional “Cotechino con Lenticchie” (Italian fresh sweet pork sausage slow cooked with organic lentils and herbs); and dessert such as warm chocolate lava cake with caramel gelato. For New Year’s Day, the restaurant will be open for dinner, serving chef’s specials and the a la carte menu.
