Isola Trattoria & Crudo Bar is a coastal Italian restaurant inspired by the Amalfi Coast, Italian Riviera and Sicily. Helmed by native Sicilian and former executive chef for Todd English, Chef Victor LaPlaca, Isola presents fresh and flavorful Italian cuisine that captures the spirit of the Italian provinces, where food, wine and hospitality are celebrated in everyday life. Modeled after the famously lush landscape of the Bobboli Gardens in Florence and the private Italian estates that line the country’s coast, Isola is a magical escape within Mondrian SoHo's 5,000 square foot greenhouse space, which features a hanging glass sculpture by artist Beth Lipman.
Isola’s coastal Italian menu specializes in contemporary crudo - a modern interpretation of Italian raw fish flavored with olive oil, salt and citrus - with trattoria selections that include hand-crafted pastas, pizzas, antipasti and secondi. The wine program at Isola features an extensive but highly selective list of wines from Italy, Spain, Greece and Southern France, with 18 rare and reasonably priced options by the glass and over 100 selections by the bottle. The cocktail program is anchored by a rotating selection of market fresh cocktails and several variations of Italian classics, including the Negroni and Aperol Spritz.
