There’s nothing like homely family restaurants in New York City that reminds us all that even in the hustling bustling streets of New York City, there’s always somewhere in the concrete jungle that will remind us all of home.
Amata, located right in the heart of Midtown East between Third and Second Avenue on 56th street is known to serve a modernized traditional Italian food. Here are some of the dishes my family and I ordered:
Pan-fried fresh mushrooms, baby arugula, cherry tomatoes, touch of honey
Raw beef tenderloin, arugula, hearts of palm, shaved parmesan
Creamy imported mozzarella, roasted peppers, prosciutto di parma, yellow heirloom tomato, olive oil, balsamic reduction
Amata is one of those family restaurants you dine at when your family is looking for an intimate, less chaotic and family friendly atmosphere. There’s nothing I can absolutely say about my experience other than to say every restaurant experience should be what I experienced at Amata: courteous and delightful. As for the food, I give them a solid 4 out of 5. Their food was delicious nevertheless, but there was a lingering taste on my tongue after eating specific dishes that felt there was something missing that has left me 1 point short from a solid 5 for Amata.
