How would you describe Sant Ambroeus?
First and foremost, a second home, not only to me and to our exceptional staff, but to all of our loyal guests as well. It is our priority to make each and every guest feel as if they are having a meal or a cup of coffee in their own home, feeling relaxed and comfortable. Similar to our sister restaurants, Sant Ambroeus Soho offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional Milanese cuisine, as well as its signature hospitality in a chic and vibrant atmosphere.
Best thing on the menu?
My favorite thing on the menu, besides our cappuccinos, are our pastas. I am married to an Italian, and Sant Ambroeus is one of the few restaurants in New York where I can safely have a pasta that is made like in Italy.
Favorite restaurant other than Sant Ambroeus?
I am a creature of habits, so I usually go to the same restaurants and those are usually my friend’s restaurants. Jack’s Wife Freda, where I am treated as if I am at home by Dean and Maya, and Uncle Boon’s, which is the best Thai in New York.
Can you cook?
I definitely can cook, I only hope you are not in a rush or starving. I am very, very picky when it comes to hosting. Everything has to be perfect.
