After being shuttered by the pandemic, Fresco By Scotto is back to its star-studded self.
Back in December, “Good Day New York” host Rosanna Scotto, whose household owns the 57th Street power-dining spot, told us it was being “put on pause.”
“We tried our best, but Midtown is empty. We hope when people come back to work, we can reopen,” she added at the time.
The household additionally posted on social media, “We are filled with so much emotion… 27 years of meeting so many wonderful people at our restaurant.” The heartfelt message additionally thanked the “incredible staff.”
But the 28-year-old restaurant — which has undergone a serious redesign so as to add extra out of doors house — opened its doorways as soon as once more this week.
The restaurant had a friends-and-family opening on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and it’ll be open to the general public beginning on the fifteenth.
Page Six is informed Katie Couric, Wendy Williams, Kelly Ripa, Donny Deutsch, Steve Madden, songwriting guru Bruce Sussman and husband “Naughty but Nice” podcast host Rob Shuter all turned out for lunch on Thursday.
Rosanna informed us, “We are excited to welcome everyone back to the newly designed Fresco by Scotto. My family and I are thrilled by the overwhelming response from all of our customers. We are back and better than ever. We are intrepid New Yorkers!”
The restaurant has been generally known as a favourite for political gamers of all stripes — from Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Chris Christie to George Pataki, Benjamin Netanyahu, John McCain and Rudy Giuliani, in addition to old-school stars.
