Dining Preview: Fattoria Dinner House

It’s safe to set your expectations high for the new 90-seat Fattoria Dinner House. Executive Chef Alessandro D’Alessi was formerly chef de cuisine at MP Taverna in Irvington, a restaurant that earned a four-star review from this magazine.

While MP Taverna offers Greek cuisine, Fattoria offers Mediterranean dishes with an emphasis on coastal Italian/Greek fare. This broader category is apparent in  menu items such as spaghetti with littlenecks in white wine, garlic, and oil ($21) and grilled octopus with chickpeas and arugula dressed in balsamic ($14).

Most dishes are prepared on a cast-iron grill, among them branzino with roasted cherry tomatoes and olives ($25); a mixed-grill plate with hanger steak, lemon chicken, and house-made lamb sausage ($28); a lamb burger ($16); and lemon chicken with garlic and dill ($20). All meats are hormone- and antibiotic-free; seafood is local from Montauk fishermen (Fattoria has a daily raw bar selection); and eggs, fruits, vegetables, extra-virgin olive oil, vinegar, and honey are sustainably produced.

In keeping with the sustainable theme, the interior boasts a bluestone-topped bar and walls made of reclaimed wood stripped to its natural state from an upstate New York barn.
