At Don Angie, Angie and Scott challenge the perception of more conventional Italian-American cuisine by incorporating global flavors in subtle and surprising ways, drawing on both the foods they grew up eating and their collective world travels. The restaurant has garnered a tremendous amount of critical acclaim, receiving a glowing, 2-star critic’s pick review from the New York Times in 2018 and named one of Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America the same year. Scott and Angie earned a nomination for Best Chef New York City and New York State by the James Beard Foundation in both 2019 and 2020, respectively. In May 2021, Don Angie was awarded a Michelin star.
