Menu
The il Buco culinary philosophy is firmly rooted in the Italian tradition of seasonality and the integrity of all ingredients. Our cuisine is inspired by mother Italy as well as the Iberian Peninsula. We spend an enormous amount of time sourcing ingredients and derive great pleasure in working with our producers to bring the best product to your table. What we can't find locally we source in Italy through a network of family and friends developed over the course of our lifetime.

Vino
Wine Spectator honored il Buco's wine list with the "Award of Excellence" several times and also named it "one of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world." il Buco's Wine Cellar is the creation of Roberto Paris, a childhood friend of Alberto Avalle's from the small town of Foligno, Umbria and an integral part of the il Buco family for more than 20 years. He draws on his knowledge of history, language, travel and people to introduce customers to new discoveries and imaginative pairings. The selection of over 400 wines is dedicated to small lesser-known producers of artisan wines that are expressions of the soils and cultures that produce them, most notably Sagrantino di Montefalco, which are available from various producers in numerous vintages. In addition, we feature wines from some of the world's most renowned wineries.
Our Chef
Early in his career Chef Roger Martinez worked in some of the finest restaurants in his native city of Barcelona, eventually working with renowned chef Ferran Adria at Talaia Mar and il Bulli. In 2005, he opened his own restaurant, La Mifanera, with his wife Marta, where they specialized in rices from around the world. It was this restaurant that inspired his cookbook, La Cocina del Arroz. Roger and family moved to NYC in 2012, first working with Chef David Bouley before joining Donna at il Buco, where he’s been Executive Chef for the past 3 years. When Donna was introduced to Roger, she knew she had found the chef she was looking for since the early days of il Buco; one who combined the rustic sensibility of Spain with the modern style of the Mediterranean kitchen that has been the hallmark of her restaurants on Bond Street and Great Jones.
