Cocktails and Cuisine in New York City at Bar Harta

Escape the hustle and bustle of New York City and step into the Mediterranean oasis that is Bar Harta inside Grayson Hotel. “The restaurant scene in Midtown Manhattan is known for expense account prices, generic dining experiences or both, but we’re helping change that with Bar Harta,” Tom Dillon, founder + CEO of Apicii (the bar’s parent company), explained. “The urban oasis offers an escape from the bustling neighborhood, serving quality cuisine, wine and cocktails at an approachable price point. Also setting this destination apart is the lush outdoor space, which has a stylish yet laid-back atmosphere that makes it a great spot for groups and special celebrations too.”

A Taste of Bar Harta in NYC

Nestled in the vibrant Bryant Park neighborhood, this al-fresco wine and tapas terrace is the latest addition to Apicii’s acclaimed hospitality group. “Bar Harta is heavily inspired by the convivial wine, cocktail and dining culture of the Western Mediterranean,” Dillon said of the menu. “We wanted a shareable menu featuring fresh, bold flavors that are wine-friendly, crowd-pleasing and craveable. The list of wines on tap is intentionally selected for easy sipping, as are the sparkling and classic cocktails. It’s all about creating a relaxed but still high-quality experience.”

“Around the world, the Western Mediterranean is celebrated for its convivial dining culture and cuisine. We wanted to create a uniquely welcoming gathering spot in Midtown Manhattan where locals and visitors alike can escape more traditional dining establishments and relax with friends and colleagues in a lush space featuring approachable and highly craveable small plates, cocktails and wines,” Dillon told us. “The menu at Bar Harta is new American with Mediterranean influences, reflecting culinary director Ron Rosselli’s vast experience with French and Italian cuisines. Throughout his 20-plus years of industry experience, he’s worked with some of the biggest names in restaurants, including Daniel Boulud and Andrew Carmellini.”

From its tree-lined seating area to its carefully curated wine selection, Bar Harta transports you to the shores of the Mediterranean without ever leaving the city. “It’s been a joy to see our guests toasting to warmer weather in the city with sparkling cocktails, and we’re looking forward to so many more memories being made this spring and summer on our outdoor terrace,” Dillon said of the guest response so far. “We hope our guests embrace the shared wine culture that inspired the concept, whether that means splitting a carafe of refreshing rosé, sampling wines on tap or sharing an assortment of small plates.”
