An Experience like
No Other…

More than ever, life happens at the table, and you are where you eat. This is the story of rarified worlds colliding to create a modern and chic institution. At Marea, the authentic, bracing flavors of coastal Italy meet the style and swagger of New York to form a new kind of gusto. Marea charts the tide for restaurant culture, with exquisite food and unmatched service that set the stage for an experience like no other.

An anchor of Central Park and New York City icon, Marea attracts those who don’t chase luxury, but who live it-by elevating life’s moments, indulging their senses, and celebrating every day with the best food, service, and surroundings in the world.
