Mamo, an outpost of the 23-year-old French Riviera staple, opened last Friday, May 8, in SoHo. The original restaurant, Mamo Le Michelangelo, was opened by Herve “Mamo” Mammoliti in Antibes, France in 1992. Mamo, the Italian provencal restaurant ran by Mammoliti’s son, will be bringing the renowned family recipes and authenticity across the Atlantic to New York City.
Chef Massimo Sola (formerly Eataly Roma) is helming the kitchen. The essentially Italian menu includes the expected pizzas, stuffed vegetables, and seafood pastas. The menu also features recipes that have been passed down the Mammoliti’s family for generations, including the Vitello Tonnato, veal with a creamy tuna sauce ($18); Raviolini al Tartufo, truffle ravioli ($24); and Ossobuco on mashed potatoes ($26).
There will also be signature cocktails like the Italian Mule and an extensive wine list with varieties from California, France, and Italy.
