We all know that scoring a seat at a Michelin Star restaurant in New York City can seem almost impossible at times. It’s about ten times more impossible when the restaurant is not only one of the most talked about in Brooklyn, but also only seats 12 people. And did we mention it’s only open four nights of the week?
One thing most people can agree on is that Blanca restaurant is well worth the wait. Though described as ‘contemporary American’ cuisine, Blanca’s tasting menus draw inspiration from all over the world. Chef Carlo Mirarchi knows how to blend both local and exotic ingredients and turn them into pure perfection.
Diners can expect to pay $180 per head for a 25 to 30-course menu and a dining experience their taste buds will never forget. Mirarchi’s versatility only adds to the excitement. You’ll never know what type of course is coming out next, and that’s all part of the fun.
Those visiting New York can’t simply turn up and hope for the best. Seats become available online 30 days before the date of the reservation. Blanca restaurant is only open on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so snagging a seat becomes even more of a challenge. But trust us, the soft-shell crab, the Wagyu carpaccio, and the sushi are all totally worth it.
