20 Feet From Hurricane Tarps Sits One Of The Best Restaurants In The World

We dined at Blanca’s on August 2nd, and after enjoying the experience, we highly recommend putting this restaurant on your bucket list. We believe in value, and for your dollar, you cannot get a better all around experience than Blanca.

Blanca was launched in 2012 and is run by Carlo Mirarchi, founder of Roberta’s

Blanca is literally in the backyard of Roberta’s, One Of the Best Restaurants in New York


Zagat rated them a 29 for food. The highest rating a restaurant can get (30 is impossible)

Blanca seats 12 people twice a day. Less than 1,000 people a month


Reservations must be made a month beforehand, and can be done with this link

Blanca RSVP

The tasting menu costs $180 and comes with 27 courses

You can also get a wine pairing for $85 and pairs wine with every single offer; you should do this, but expect to be sloshed by the end


Adding to the charm of Blanca, one of our dishes included a tiny flower from their onsite garden

Part of the charm of Blanca’s is you can bring your Modelo tall boys into your $180/person tasting meal

As a twist, the bread isn’t served until 90 minutes into the meal and is frickin’ awesome


The best dish served is the agnolotti pasta, it’s so good they only serve you a single piece


If you’re lucky, they’ll offer you seconds. (Hope you’re lucky on your visit)


We recommend dining with a group of friends so you can experience the pure joy on their face as they eat each dish


Friends, Blanca is an amazing experience. Dining there, you get to experience the best food in the world in a casual, welcoming environment complete with local charm and everything that’s great about this city.
