The Barbalýc, as legend has it, is an elfin spirit of wine that is said to warm the heart. Each family in Carnia is said to have it's own elf, who watches over them throughout the ages. This fable is brought to life at this Friulian-inspired Northern Italian eatery, open for just under a year.

Owner Emanuele Simeoni set out to create an atmosphere in which Italy meets Manhattan. At Barbalýc, he achieves just that. The upscale restaurant is devoted to all things Italian - food, design, wine and chefs - it attracts a sophisticated clientele. Barbalýc's homage to sexy elegance is one of New York's best kept dining secrets. The intimate and romantic decor consists of Botticino marble, Afromosia wood and soft Italian leather - courtesy of designer Luca Botto.

Executive Chef Christian Fantoni, formerly of Le Cirque and Le Bernardin, adds a new twist to traditional fare. Friulian Polenta with Wild Mushrooms or Foie Gras and the Venison Stew with Polenta, Apple, and Blueberry Compote are just a few creations to try. Pastry Chef Iacopo Falai, also a Le Cirque alum, has created many original and exquisite desserts, ranging from the "Bianco Mangiare" vanilla flavor with asparagus foam and raspberry tuille to the "Blueberry" soup.

Guests can enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the street level bar/lounge before heading downstairs to the main dining room. The bar offers over 20 special selection wines by the glass, with each choice accenting the Friuli regional cuisine. Barbalýc's wine cellar holds 175 brands, with a focus on Italian wines.

The businessmen, Hollywood producers, celebrities and East Side neighbors that have become regulars at this eatery are proof that Barbalýc is truly a first-class dining experience.
