SoHo is a neighborhood with some of the most amazing businesses and stories! We found Epistrophy, a charming restaurant, where the owner plays Jazz music to his clients! How awesome is that!?
Luca and Georgia came to NY many years ago for a quick 3 months experience. They worked in a few bars and coffee shops before moving back to Sardinia. On the side, Luca also played Jazz music for some extra cash – he plays the trumpet!
After a while, they couldn’t get New York City out of their heads, decided to come back and in 2005 opened Epistrophy – a restaurant with Sardinian-inspired recipes.
A huge portion of the restaurant was actually built by Luca and his former boss and friend, Leo. Luca explained that:
“Every year we revamp the place without losing its soul. This way, our customers won’t be upset and we maintain our essence.”
The dishes we tried were:
- Quinoa Salad with kale, beet, squash, chickpea, avocado and radish
- Avocado Toast
- Vegan pasta with vegetables
- For dessert, a banana muffin with fruits
We can’t forget about the beautiful rustic décor! Just like we enjoy it, with beautiful metal and wooden tables, a gorgeous full bar, and a cute waiting area that reminds us of a home.
For the lovers of the traditional 20’s-30’s Jazz, every Sunday night they offer live music!
And the coolest things is: every 1st Sunday, Luca himself plays too! I mean: How cool is it to have the owner himself play music to his guests!? We love it! By the way, he has a few records already if you want to check these out!
We’re sure you’ll love this place and we can’t wait to go back!
If you’re going to explore Brooklyn, be sure to visit their sister restaurant in Greenpoint called Le Fanfare! And take a look at the YouTube video we’ve done there as well!
