Ciano, a 3-star Bloomberg Italian restaurant in Manhattan’s Flatiron District, has dropped the price of its tasting menu by $20 to $115, down from $135 per person. I’ll let chef Shea Gallante tell this one in his own words:
The new Spring Market Menu is seven courses and is the only prix-fixe listed at this time. Previously, Ciano also offered 5-courses for $96 and 4-courses for $79, so some will naturally see the $115 menu as a price hike of sorts. And of course, the full a la carte menu is still available. Even as black truffle season is long over, Gallante is one of the few chefs who’s cutting prices (sort of) amid rampant global food inflation. So considering the excellent quality of food and service I had here, I’ll rate Ciano as a BUY.
