This NYC Restaurant Is Ruled By Grandmas Of The World


Based in Staten Island, Enoteca Maria’s kitchen offer unique tastes from different cultures. What makes this NYC restaurant extra special is that the chefs here are grandmothers or “nonnas”, as they are referred to in the sphere, from around the world. Representing food from their home countries like Italy, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Argentina, Japan, Prague, Ukraine and Equador, the menu of Enoteca Maria always brings in customers in search of homely cooking.

Scravella believes that every culture’s representation, at a time like this, is very important. He talks of every chef in Enoteca Maria very endearingly and says he is proud of them. “Music, art and food takes you across those borders comfortably,” he says.

“One is always Italian, the other nonna is from another part of the world. Today it’s Sri Lanka, last week we had Palestine, we had Ukraine, we had Siberia,” he says about the rotating collection of chefs.

With recipes that have passed down as legacies from their own mothers and grandmothers, the menu is dynamic. They also make sure that they use local and organic produce to cook. Maria Giannella, from Naples, said that she learned to cook from her own grandmother and enjoys cooking for her grandchildren. She has been working at Entoneca Maria for more than two years. Ploumitsa Zimnis, from Greece, has been working at Entoneca Maria since 2016, after her husband died. “The ladies are like sisters all together,” she says.

Our hearts are melting; our mouths, watering.

We love this NYC Restaurant. Who wouldn’t wanna taste food made by grandma’s of the world? Here’s another thing you’d wanna taste – the pizza this man is making… ON A VOLCANO!
