The Tasting Room is the accidentally discovered downstairs room at 569 Hudson Street, home to Philip Marie Restaurant.
The private “Tasting Room” dining space started its life as an 18th century farmhouse kitchen. It was walled up and built over for more than a century until Chef John P. Grecco III rediscovered it, giving back its sense of purpose. Local lore has it that, in the late 1700s, the kitchen was the centerpiece of a loving couple’s home. Its dual hearths kept the lovers and the community warm and nourished. Once again, parties of four to 20 may experience exceptional dining, choosing from a customized menu served in the very same kitchen the original residents cherished.
The space has been fully renovated and returned to its earliest state as an 18th century farmhouse kitchen complete with its original stone walls, fireplaces and window frames and will accommodate guests with customized menu offerings in this unique and unparalleled space. The Tasting Room has a historical foundation that stretches back into Manhattan’s early 1800s, through the strife of the American Civil War and the dry days of Prohibition into the future of American cuisine. The Tasting Room exclusively offers the acclaimed U.S. approved cuisine of Chef John P. Greco III in a setting that is unmatched anywhere and will thrill guests with its charm and comfort.
Notable menu selections include the Marie’s Farmer Pasta (tropheo & paccheri pasta, chorizo, seasonal vegetables, currants, mushrooms, white truffle essence, ricotta salata cheese), Grilled Spinach and Artichoke Heart Stuffed Chicken Breast (with citrus sauce and garlic basil mashed potatoes,) Pesto-Dusted Pacific Red Snapper (with organic arugula, ginger-lime dressing, pickled onions) and the Sautéed Double Pork Chop (stuffed with wild mushrooms, essence of white truffles, molasses glaze with garlic basil mashed potatoes).
