Sophisticated Mediterranean in the Upper West Side

Tessa is the newest restaurant in the Upper West Side, just north of Lincoln Center. With a gorgeous contemporary ambiance - which includes exposed brick walls and iron gate-like material throughout - Tessa features a bar on the ground floor and a huge upstairs dining room. The food and menu shimmers with a "mostly Mediterranean" menu highlighting tons of grilled and roasted pescatarian and meat dishes, homemade pastas, and charcuterie items, "a beautiful blend of Greek, French and Italian".

With a menu drawing primarily from French and Italian cuisine, Executive Chef Cedric Tovar offers guests everything from shareable starters to hearty pastas and grilled entrees fit for two.
