Sant Ambroeus Gets a New Look, Menu

Sant Ambroeus Italian restaurant in the West Village relaunched last night with a new design by Robert McKinley. The GoldBar decorator used striped fabric from Italian fashion house Etro for the dining area's booths, which feature chairs upholstered in peacock-blue mohair, while banquettes are done in burnt-orange Italian leather. A large photograph of La Scala theater in Milan alludes to the restaurant's roots — the original Sant Ambroeus opened there in 1936 — and a new Murano glass chandelier also references Italy.

Sant Ambroeus has an expanded wine list, and the restaurant's new look calls attention to it with bottles displayed prominently by the entrance. Customers can order snacks from the bar menu as an aperitivo, while pastries are still available for sale during the day. The new menus, and more photos, are below.
