83 1/2


By Nalini Leilani

Chef Will Foden and Wine Director Jean-Luc Le Du recently re-crafted the menu at 83 ½, the farm-to-table Italian gem on the Upper East Side. Owner Vincenzo Mangiafridda’s previous culinary treasure served as the muse for his newest. The idea behind 83 ½ began to ferment in his mind while developing Gino’s Pizzeria, a 20-year-old beloved neighborhood spot, and in between trips to the family farm in Caccamo, Sicily.
