Inside The Maritime Hotel, is a rustic Italian brasserie that serves up delicious thin crust pizzas and a cozy atmosphere. La Bottega is known for their spacious indoor bar and large outdoor patio, but that’s not all. Chef and long time friend, Bart Retolatto, gives you another reason to visit the trendy meatpacking restaurant. One being their thin crust pizzas which are cooked in a wood-fired oven like the tasty Pizza con Cavolini, Zucca e Gauncale. This thin crusted pizza is topped with caramelized brussels sprouts, roasted yellow squash, crispy guancale, pomodoro sauce, fontina and fresh oregano.

I absolutely love gnocchi because they are like little clouds of goodness. So I was especially delighted when Bart brought out the special pasta, Gnocchi di Patate di Dolce, which is sweet potato dumplings served in brown butter with crispy sage and Pecorino romano. It was a perfect combination of sweetness from the potato, a sharp flavor from the Pecorino and crunch from the crispy sage. A rich and flavorful dish that can definitely steal the spotlight.

La Bottega is the perfect place to unwind after a long day. You can bask in the sun during spring and summer in their outdoor patio or sink into their comfy banquettes on a cold winter night.
