About

Trattoria One Fifth is a bustling restaurant and bar in Greenwich Village with handmade pastas, artisanal pizzas, thoughtfully-crafted cocktails and a well-curated wine list.

Restaurants have been in near-continuous operation at this address since 1927 and we're happy to keep the tradition going. 

Part of Chef Marc Forgione’s Respect Hospitality Group, Trattoria One Fifth is the fun, lively, younger sibling to sister restaurants Peasant and Restaurant Marc Forgione. Like all of his restaurants, Trattoria One Fifth has the same careful attention on ingredients and service.

History

One Fifth Avenue is an address rich in history including its many restaurant tenants over the years.

At the end of WWII as the homecoming parade of troops marched down Fifth Ave patrons of the Number One Bar toasted with Martinis on the sidewalk.

In the early 70’s, restaurateur Patricia Murphy, opened a branch of her namesake “Candlelight Restaurant” in the premises.

For decades, the first floor of One Fifth has housed a restaurant. In the ’30s, there was the supper club, Number One Bar that launched the careers of Dorothy Lamour and Paul Lynde. By 1976, George Schwarz and his wife, Kiki Kogelnik, opened One Fifth, where brothers Keith and Brian McNally worked before they went on to open the Odeon.

Throughout the ’90s, Alfred Portale, the celebrated chef of Gotham Bar & Grill, ran a seafood restaurant, named One Fifth Avenue. That was later followed by Vince and Linda, where Anthony Bourdain ran the kitchen. Otto Enoteca e Pizzeria opened in 2003 and was a mainstay for the neighborhood for close to 20 years.

Menu

The food at Trattoria One Fifth draws influence from Chef Marc Forgione's family with a menu that nods to both Italian tradition and New York’s surroundings, including a focus on local ingredients from the Union Square Greenmarket. Chef Marc's special pizza dough integrates the structure and crunch of a NY slice with the focus on technique and ingredients of Neapolitan style. Housemade tarts and gelato are just a couple of the stars on the restaurant’s incredible dessert menu.
