There are thousands of Italian eateries that have opened over time, but The Sosta is setting itself apart as a new destination in New York City that puts a fresh, feminine spin on authentic Italian eats.
Items on the menu at The Sosta include salads, seasonal bowls, focaccia sandwiches, pastas that are made freshly in-house every day, as well as meatballs that can be ordered as sides. For those who adhere to restricted diets, some of the specialty items on the menu include zucchini noodles and gluten-free pasta.
The Sosta is a new venture from By Chloe co-founder Samantha Wasser and chef Ali LaRaia. As LaRaia puts it, "The idea came from road-tripping through Italy and being able to stop at the gas stations, called auto grills, and getting really good coffee and pasta at an affordable price."
