il Buco Named one of NYC's Most Dog Friendly Restaurants!

Architectural Digest included us in their recent round-up of Top Dog-Friendly NYC Restaurants. Check out what they had to say about us below!

" il Buco - Formerly an antiques store, this cozy Bond Street staple has quickly risen to international fame with an authentic menu full of recipes from Italy and Spain. Wood furnishings, brick walls, and dotted candlelight draw in locals and celebrities from all over the world. Dogs can join their owners in the restaurant’s backyard dining area, which offers water bowls and dog treats." - ADShare with a Friend
Beverage Director Roberto Paris Featured in Plate Magazine!

No Way, Rosé: Try These Light Summer Wines Instead of Rosé

“At il Buco Alimentari, we offer lighter reds with soft tannins like Gamay from Morgon, along with similar wines from Italy (Ciliegiolo, Bonarda, Cerasuolo di Vittoria, Schiava) or French Jura (Poulsard and Trussaeu)—all of which are great in the summer. I've found that guests are really open to trying a lighter red that's been chilled as a substitute for rosé, if they are interested in exploring different options"- Roberto Paris, Beverage Director il Buco Alimentari & Vineria & Il Buco.
