Cotenna is known for some of the finest Italian dishes in town and renowned for its burrata and pasta. They boast a long list of wines as well as a variety of cocktails. While some wines are costly, their food choices are delightfully affordable. The decor is simple while matching the restaurant’s innate elegance on a small scale.
It was a dark, bone-chilling, windy night in the West Village to see Now Serving: A Guide to Aesthetic Etiquette in Four Courses. Entering with apprehension into this intimate, warm, carefully choreographed enclave from the world of misogyny, I was met with smiling, gentle greetings enveloped in aural musical reminders from the 1940s and ’50s. From greeters to booth operators and ushers dressed in fanciful costumes I got a token, a prize, and a choice of refreshment from three options – beer, mints, or popcorn. One could not help but smile.
