Nutmeg is an upscale establishment passionately bringing both the authentic flavors and familial warmth of Northern Italy to the Upper East Side community. We offer a festive, yet classically elegant Italian dining experience for all. Our Tuscan-reminiscent space purposefully hosts several rooms to cater to private parties, families, large groups, single diners, or couples seeking slightly more privacy.
Executive Chef & Owner Rachel
Rachel always knew she wanted to be a chef ever since she was a little girl playing under the kitchen table while her grandmother was cooking. Sometimes when her grandmother was making her famous tortellini, only Rachel was allowed to help fill them. Now, a few decades and a few positions at top Michelin-Star restaurants later, she opened her own restaurant, Rachel’s! Outside of opening hours, she likes to do yoga as well as volunteer at her local food bank.
