Restaurant Spotlight: Maialino

Just footsteps from our no fee rentals in NYC you will find some of the best restaurants in the world. Chef's come from far and wide to make this little island their home. For amazing Italian fare, make your way to Maialino, located in Gramercy Park, inside the historic Gramercy Park Hotel.

A Landmark Location

The Gramercy Park Hotel, formerly the New York Hotel,was opened in 1925. Formerly the birthplace of Edith Wharton, this became the place to be. Humphrey Bogart was married on the rooftop of the hotel, Babe Ruth could often be found at the bar and, before he was president, JFK made this hotel his home. Music seems to be constantly flowing through the halls here. The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Madonna, U2 and Lady Gaga have all found this to be a great spot to stop off. In 2006, the massive renovations revived the hotel as well filled it with art. Walking through the halls you are as likely to see Scarlet Johansson as you are a classic Andy Warhol.

A Restaurant Created by a Master

There is one name which can instantly put Maialino at the top of a great restaurant list. This fine establishment is part of the Danny Meyer Union Square Hospitality Group. This fact underscores the divine food and love of Rome which comes from Chef Nick Anderer. A graduate of Columbia University, Anderer worked for Mario Batali in between trips to study food in Rome. He has been with Maialino since 2009 adding flavor and spice to menu each year.

Steeping Out of New York and Into Italy

While this spot is only minutes from our no fee rentals in NYC, when you step inside, you will feel as if you have stepped onto the sun soaked Italian streets. There are four distinct spaces to this restaurant. Bar Maialino is walk in only, located in the front. The Trattoria is the main dining room. The Cucina invites guests in to the salumi and bread station. Adjacent the Cucina is the Private Dining Room which can seat up to 26 for private events. The exposed beams, dark hardwood floors, simple tables and wrought iron lighting make guests feel right at home.
