Café Medi

A Mediterranean breeze wafts onto the Lower East Side courtesy of this 3,500-square-foot coastal newcomer from nightlife-hospitality pros Corey Lane and Roberto Buchelli inside Hotel on Rivington. Helmed by Vai chef-owner Vincent Chirico, the kitchen turns out modern-Medi plates like summer peaches with burrata and speck, roasted king-oyster mushrooms with white polenta and a soft egg, and a whole American snapper with niçoise olives and leeks. The skylit dining room features an eight-seat crudo station, with options like fluke ceviche and hamachi with preserved ginger, as well as a cocktail bar with a natural-focused drinks menu that’s overseen by New York Distilling Company’s Allen Katz and marked by house infusions, muddled fruits and plenty of herbs and greens.

Cafe Medi is hands down one of the best restaurants in the LES. The ambience and vibe is very chic w artsy fashionable people and unique cocktails. I love the avocado toasts for brunch and I loved the tartare and chicken for dinner. My favorite is slipping into JIA for drinks after. Amazing hospitality !

They were able to take us for dinner last minute on a Saturday night which was great. Food was pretty good! Burger and mushroom ravioli were delicious. Mushroom appetizer was delicious. The octopus and tuna tartare were ok. A little on the expensive side.
