Stella 34 Trattoria Restaurant Review

: A one-time storage room on the fifth floor of Macy’s has been transformed into an elegant (though casual) Italian restaurant. The Empire State Building can be admired from the large windows in the space. Chef Jonathan Benno of Lincoln and Per Se fame oversees the menu and Jarett Appell works in the kitchen, turning out Italian staples that please the shopping-weary diner. The wood-fired oven creates pizzas reminiscent of those in Naples, constructed with ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes, Caputo flour and fior de latte mozzarella. The cauliflower, black peppers and Meyer lemon pie in particular is a standout. Kale-layered lasagna and the Fontina cream-bathed tortiglioni pasta make for a flavor-packed carb fix. Diver sea scallops are hard to pass up, especially when they’re wading in a shallow pool of blood orange and fennel purée. Among the few desserts available, we suggest the rice gelato. The all-Italian wine list has some affordable options, including by the glass.
