"Amata" means "beloved"

AMATA IS A VIBRANT YET COZY ITALIAN RESTAURANT SERVING DELICIOUS TRADITIONAL ITALIAN FARE WITH A MODERN FLAIR.

Located in east midtown Manhattan, NYC, Amata boasts a large, splendidly-decorated room, with white linen service, sidewalk café seating, a quaint and lively bar, and a smaller intimate room for private events and functions.

AMATA is the coming-together of decades of NYC-based restaurant experience and decades of friendship, represented by restaurateur Jack Dorrian, and executive chef Enzo Di Rende.


Bio

Chef Enzo DI RENDE

Chef Enzo DI RENDE

Steeped in the epitome of Italian family tradition, Enzo Di Rende—devoted husband and father of five—started his kitchen experience at age 13 working at the famous Domenick's (of Arthur Avenue in the Bronx-the real Little Italy of NYC!) with his own father who owned the restaurant.

Enzo would continue to pursue his passion and further develop his skills in the kitchen, eventually graduating from The Culinary Institute of America in 1996, and opening up his own Arthur Avenue Italian restaurant in 1999.

A long-time fan of classic traditional Italian food, Jack Dorrian became an immediate fan of Enzo's deliciously comforting dishes, and now faithfully believes his friends and neighbors here in Manhattan will make themselves happily "at home" with Enzo's superlative familial cooking as well.

 


At AMATA, we treat our business, our food, our traditions, and our customers, as our "beloved".
