Santina is a coastal Italian restaurant created by Mario Carbone, Rich Torrisi and Jeff Zalaznick. Situated on what used to be the coast of Manhattan where some of the city's first farmers market once stood.
Santina is located underneath the Gansevoort entrance to the High Line Park in a glass box structure designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano. The room, outfitted with a rectangular bar, has 100 seats at white marble tables beneath five lavish Murano chandeliers. A blue-and-white Julian Schnabel installation of broken pottery, representing the sea and rocks, dominates one wall. The décor is beachy, coastal Italian, yet still feels super chic.
