2015 Private Dining

Barbuzzo Upstairs

In March, the ambitious brains behind this 13th Street favorite debuted a new, absolutely beautiful private dining space on the second floor that holds up to 65 seated and 100 standing. This ain’t your average banquet space: There’s a vintage piano, an open kitchen (including a chef’s counter), which chef Marcie Turney uses as her test kitchen when the room isn’t booked, and they’ll customize your menu to include dishes from any of their restaurants, so you can get carnitas from Lolita, charcuterie from Jamonera, meatballs from Little Nonna’s, and, of course, the ever- popular salted caramel budino from downstairs.
