ABOUT THE LEOPARD AT DES ARTISTES

The Leopard at des Artistes is owned by husband-and-wife-team Gianfranco Sorrentino and Paula Bolla-Sorrentino, and partner Chef Vito Gnazzo. Chef Gnazzo is the culinary artist of the Il Gattopardo group’s three restaurants: Il Gattopardo, Mozzarella & Vino and The Leopard at des Artistes. Located in the New York landmarked Hotel Des Artistes, and surrounded by the astonishing 1920s murals by Howard Chandler Christy, The Leopard at des Artistes finds its roots in the area once known as “The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies” (mid 1800s) and in the culinary traditions of the regions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, Sardinia, and of course Sicily, reaching a balance between dishes based on rural elements, such as pasta, vegetables, cheese, and seafood ingredients from the Costiera.
