A lively yet intimate indoor/outdoor destination fusing Italian traditions with contemporary refinements, Feroce is a new concept from Francesco Panella of Antica Pesa, the legendary restaurant in Rome and Brooklyn, and Tao Group Hospitality. Feroce is a place where guests walk in and feel as though they’ve been instantly transported to Italy, and Italians walk in and feel right at home. The ristorante’s dinner menus reflect the cuisine found across Italy and is dedicated to dishes from a variety of Italian regions that change with the seasons. Feroce combines the best of both worlds by importing select ingredients from historic brands and small producers from across Italy and sourcing fresh produce from the best local purveyors in New York. Recipes are kept simple to highlight the flavors of each ingredient and showcase its terroir—the soil, air, and water in which it grew. Tableside presentations add to the sense of occasion: Servers display a rack of artisan salumi, produced exclusively for Feroce and sliced to order. Later, a grappa cart roves the dining room, doling out digestivi paired with pastries.
