Scout Notes: A night spent at the elegant and flavorful Il Tesoro will show you why this Upper East Side spot is a true treasure. A year ago, experienced chef and restaurateur A.J. Black took over the space left behind by the legendary Primavera Ristorante. Starting with the decor, he sought to restore the space’s original look and feel. Black then carved (and seasoned) his way into New York’s vibrant restaurant scene with skills garnered from the Italian Culinary Institute and the renowned Le Cordon Bleu. Today, Il Tesoro mixes old-world charm with Black’s modern take on Italian classics. His menus are fresh and seasonal, and the dishes are nothing short of inspired. To start, the Cozze al Zafferan antipasto is a bright assortment of mussels with white wine, lemon, onion, saffron, and a touch of cream. Next, the Melanzane Ripiene is a rich concoction of fresh mixed seafood and thinly sliced eggplant, sauteed with cherry tomatoes and finished with fontina and mozzarella cheeses. Also worth savoring is the Duck Braciole, a juicy roasted duck breast stuffed with spinach and fontina cheese, dressed in a Barolo wine and wild mushroom sauce, then plated over a luscious risotto confit. Not to be outdone by the rest of your meal, the Limoncello Tiramisu is a zesty take on the sweet Italian favorite. Continue to enjoy the ambiance with every bite and try a few more glasses of wine from Chef Black’s extensive, well-curated wine list. This gem of a restaurant is yours to hold onto.
