About Etcetera Etcetera:

Owner Daniele Kucera has drawn on his own unique cultural heritage and many years of restaurant expertise to create a warm sanctuary of elegant dining.
With its sleek, gorgeous interior and sharp, friendly staff, Etcetera Etcetera has become a heavenly haven and shimmering neighborhood fixture for both discriminating New Yorkers and curious tourists. In addition to mouth-watering favorites such as Homemade Basil Spaghetti with Crab, 10 oz. grilled skirt steak marinated in a parsley, lemon and roasted garlic sauce and Burrata with tomatoes, chives, pesto and balsamic vinegar reduction, there are always fresh and innovative options on the seasonal menus, and the outgoing staff is always good for a tasty recommendation.
