Welcome to Tartinery. Located in the heart of Manhattan.
The instant I saw this place, my heart skipped a beat. Perhaps it's the lighting, or the raw materials mix with clean materials, or perhaps it's the tree, central to that single table. And so they say..."Tartinery is the modern version of the traditional French bistro. Its concept, inevitably, revolves around the Tartine, which can be described as a classic and gourmet open-faced sandwich served on a razor-thin slice of toasted bread. Of course, our feature bread is the well–renowed Poilane country bread from St Germain–des–Pres in Paris." (Mmm!)
"The industrial decor is a tactful blend of New York classics and European soul. Raw and reclaimed materials form the roof of the restaurant and contribute to the retro contemporary feel. We seek to promote a culture defined by "retro–innovation"–to capture the best of the past and merge it with the best of the modern." I love their concept, what they bring to the public, and the New York lofty feel of their open space. Warmth, and the appetizing aroma of fresh bread can nearly be detected through these wonderful images...
