Il Buco was created in April of 1994 by New York based independent filmmaker, Donna Lennard. The antique setting provides a cozy, romantic atmosphere in which you feel almost "at home", offering traditional italian delicacies.
An antique store with a hidden kitchen, il Buco is known for its outstanding food as well as its innate charm. Chef Ignacio Mattos (trained as a youngling in his Italian grandmother’s kitchen) prepares Mediterranean cuisine, focusing on the bold flavors of simplistic, prime ingredients. And, with a menu that changes nightly, fresh seafood fare is the order of the day—try the cod croquettes and octopus with Umbrian chickpeas and parsley over charred bruschetta. Or taste the sage-rubbed porchetta with garlicky black kale alongside a glass of wine.
Great food and close to Bowery Hotel.
Wonderful local restaurant in a pleasant walking distance--across from an architectural gem at 40 Bond St.
