Café Carmellini Launches at the Fifth Avenue Hotel in New York

November 27, 2023


Café Carmellini has opened its doors in New York’s NoMad neighborhood, offering a modern menu of French and Italian cuisine. The name of the restaurant is a nod to chef Andrew Carmellini‘s family business, a coffee importing operation that thrived in Tuscany for 120 years, while the interior design “pays tribute to a timeless Italian brasserie deeply rooted in the modern essence of New York City,” says designer Martin Brudnizki, whose eponymous studio helmed the project.

Café Carmellini is nestled on the ground level of the recently launched Fifth Avenue Hotel, a former five-story Renaissance palazzo designed by McKim, Mead & White (the architects who created quintessential New York buildings like the Brooklyn Museum, Columbia University, and the original Pennsylvania Station). The landmarked building underwent a seven-year renovation led by hotelier and owner Alex Ohebshalom.
