From the owners of the critically acclaimed estela comes this all-day Italian-inspired menu. Situated on a sunny corner in West Soho, the expansive windows reflect the light wood and marble throughout the dining room and bar, inviting guests to order a bottle of wine and linger in the space.
Thomas Carter, Co-Owner and Director of Beverage and Service
Before Estela and Café Altro, Thomas was beverage director at the award-wining Blue Hill at Stone Barns for six years. He has also worked in wine service for Alain Ducasse at the Essex House, and as a cook at New York restaurants including Le Bernardin, Mercer Kitchen and Union Pacific. He holds degrees from Columbia College Chicago and the Culinary Institute of America. Thomas found Ig through a truffle guy.
Ignacio Mattos, Co-Owner and Chef
Ignacio was born in Uruguay and learned to cook in the kitchens of grilling master Francis Mallman and Slow Food legend Alice Waters. At Estela, he has earned acclaim for bold, Mediterranean-inspired cooking. With Altro, Ignacio returns to Italian cuisine, which was his focus for several years as the chef of Il Buco. The cooking at Altro draws inspiration from all over Italy and reflects a light, personal touch. And just like at Estela, the food at Altro aims to satisfy the everyday needs of New Yorkers, as well as visitors who want something truly of the city.
Ignacio was nominated for a James Beard Best Chef: New York award in 2014. In that same year, Bon Appétit declared that "you'll see and taste his influence on American cooking for years to come."
