Practically born into the restaurant industry, the charming Vincent DeGrezia (Above) spent years working under the guidance of his Italian father, restaurateur Joseph DeGrezia. When Joseph was presented with a business opportunity in Midtown East, Vincent jumped on board and partnered with his father so they could combine his “nightlife” experience with the family’s expertise in flavorful cuisine and stellar hospitality. Dedicated to providing diners with a complete dining experience, the father son team built G-50 on the foundation of exciting gastronomic offerings, delivered with exquisite service, in a stylish and modern atmosphere. Taking their vision of a contemporary, Americanized bistro with a dash of nightlife attitude, G-50 exemplifies the new breed of venue for the Midtown area.
The final defining moment for G-50 was finding the chef that could construct their culinary vision; clearly there was no one better to fill those shoes than long-time collaborator Executive Chef Vincent Vigliotti.. With years of skillful cooking experience under his belt, Chef Vigliotti has created a menu that will offer flavorful plates with an inventive twist. The chef-driven menu is a compilation of mix-and-match plates, featuring both smaller snacks perfect for nibbling and sharing, as well as seasonal entrées that make for a satisfying meal
Creative starters include Grilled Wild Boar Sausage with a warm spicy bean salad, Poached Portuguese Octopus with fingerling potatoes and black olives, and their signature Baby Meatball plates (Lamb, Beef, Veal, Sausage, Chicken and a Meatless Meatball).The menu also features a Raw Bar complete with East and West Coast Oysters, Shrimp, Lobster, Crab Cocktails and Little Neck Clams and “perfect for sharing” Cheese, Meat, and Wild Game Platters.
Buttermilk Fried Chicken prepared with mashed potato and baby carrots and Grilled Rib Eye Steak with fabulous housemade French fries. as well as a fine Lamb Shank Ossobucco in Port wine sauce exemplify several of the menu’s seasonal entrées. Don’t miss the chef’s Eggplant Parmigiana. It’s a family recipe and the lightest you will ever taste. Desserts, whether a Chocolate Bomb or knockout Tiramisu are awesome.
The beverage program features a first-class wine list, where diners have the option to pair dishes with a remarkable 70 wines by the glass. With an elegant, handcrafted cocktail list, the impressive bar area serves as a leisurely alternative to dine and scope out the scene. As night takes over the city, G-50 takes on a different vibe with delicious drinks, bar snacks and a playful nightlife scene just as fun and delicious as its dinner crowd. When the lights go down and the partygoers filter in, the restaurant cranks up its soundtrack of funky retro tracks.
Decorated with steel and glass fixtures, G-50 invites their clientele to wine and dine in a sleek, industrial ambiance. The modern-day café is surrounded by white-tiled walls and enhanced by large windowed walls that open up the room. The restaurant’s unique layout has made it possible to truly make this a family affair with a new outpost of Vincent’s grandfather’s legendary J&V Pizzeria, of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, where Manhattanites will finally get the chance to weigh in on their infamous secret recipe.
With an attractive clientele, hopping bar scene and not-to-be missed cuisine, the restaurant that rarely sleeps will serve a stylish taste to the sophisticated Midtown neighborhood.
