Part of the landmark Hotel des Artistes on the Upper West Side just across the street from Central Park on West 67th Street, The Leopard at des Artistes features museum quality Howard Chandler Christy wall murals from the early 1930s showcasing various nymphs depicted in scenes modeled after Elise Ford.

Owned and operated by husband-and-wife-team Gianfranco Sorrentino and Paula Bolla-Sorrentino, along with Executive Chef Vito Gnazzo, The Leopard at des Artistes curates a menu inspired by mid-1800s Kingdom of Two Sicilies as well as the culinary traditions of Campania, Basilicata, Calabria, Apulia, and Sardinia. All dishes have a baseline of fresh ingredients built with deft preparation steeped in near instinctual kitchen prowess.

Born and raised on the Amalfi Coast in Salerno, Chef Vito Gnazzo launched his culinary career in Milan at 3-star Michelin Antica Osteria del Ponte. After immigrating to the United States in 1981, Gnazzo worked as head chef at Il Rex in California before moving to New York in 1993 joining restaurant trio Il Gattopardo, Mozzarella & Vino, and The Leopard at des Artistes as culinary artist in-residence where he's been ever since.

Chef Gnazzo strikes a balance between his longstanding culinary expertise and letting dishes speak for themselves with simple ingredients like homemade pasta, seasonal vegetables, farmhouse cheeses, and fresh caught seafood.

Signature plates include Pan-Seared Duck Breast Porchetta with fennel pollen, cipollini with aged balsamic vinegar, pickled raisins and vegetable caponata; Halibut In Brodetto with baby artichoke and fingerling potatoes; and Maltagliati with wild game and porcini mushroom ragú. The dessert menu boasts specials like Traditional Zabaione with fresh mixed berries and Nutella Chocolate Mousse served on hazelnut crunch and banana gelato.

At first glance, The Leopard at des Artistes menu may appear fragmented between regions but a closer examination of Italy's culinary history reveals a series of interdependent local cuisines rather than what are often considered authentic regional dishes. This happened because most Italians before WWI rarely left their villages with the exception of nobility and clergy resulting in town-by-town variations in preparation and recipes.

Italy's geographic location in the middle of the Mediterranean also infused dishes with a mélange of foreign influences like French cookery in Liguria, Piemonte, and the Valle D’Aosta while Austro-Hungarians settled in the Veneto, Trentino Alto Adige, and Friuli Venezia Giulia. Milanese risottos and arrosto cuts of meat notably reflect Spain's occupation of the city for 150 years up until the War of the Spanish Succession. The British introduced Classic bistecca alla Fiorentina and zuppa Inglese, English steak, and English trifle to Tuscany while Jews fleeing the Inquisition used what they could to create dishes like caponata and fennel gratin that are still popular to this day.

The New York Expo Center boasts an amazing 10-acre venue space located directly on the East River Waterfront. Featuring 90,000 sq feet interior space with a 60,000 sq foot main event space, the New York Expo Center is a perfect place to host any large scale event, festival or concert. The prominent smoke stack on site can be seen from across the East River, the Major Deegan Expressway, the Bruckner Expressway and the Triborough Bridge, offering unique branding and promoting opportunities as well as an easily recognizable landmark for your guests. Perfect for festivals with its dual indoor/outdoor staging options, huge waterfront lawn as well as an interior space that&rsquos longer than a football field, this property is also fully bordered and contains multiple entrances/exits.

Its Size Is Grand Scale:

12,000 Sq Ft Mezzanine
60,000 Sq Ft Main Exhibit Hall
90,000 Sq Ft Interior Space
435,000 Sq Ft Venue Space

The 136,000-square-foot Exposition Center serves as the largest indoor event space north of New York City between Boston and Cleveland. With 110,000 square feet of clear-span floor space, The Expo Center is set to host major shows and special events, including car, boat, and consumer and trade shows. During the 2018 New York State Fair, the massive venue will be transformed into a temporary ice rink as a centerpiece to host hockey, figure skating, broomball and other attractions to showcase its versatility. It will also host the new I LOVE NEW YORK exhibit, which highlights some of the state's major outdoor recreation and key tourism locations through interactive exhibits.

The Expo Center, with 110,000 square feet of clear-span floor space, has the capacity to hold more than 500, 10'-by-10' trade show booths. The massive venue, which also features 4,000 retractable seats, will attract major shows and special events, including car, boat, and RV shows, pet expos, consumer and trade shows, home and garden shows, tech expos and more-many of which were previously unable to come to upstate New York due to the lack of suitable space. The Expo Center increases the amount of available indoor space on the Fairgrounds to more than 450,000 square feet.

An EZ-Pass Plus tolling system and cash lanes are also new to the Orange and Brown Lots this year. In addition, new LED lighting, sidewalks, crosswalks and pedestrian refuge areas were added to make it even easier to walk to and from the Fair. Three new bus stops with bus shelters were also installed, along with signage and an extensive drainage system for the entire lot.

The improvements mark the completion of Phase 2 of Governor Cuomo's revitalization plan. Phase 1 of the transformation plan included a full-service RV park for 313 campers and a larger, relocated Midway area that allows for more open space for Fair programming and non-Fair events. A new Main Gate entrance was also built, along with a new exhibit area for the New York State Police, and the Sky Ride, a 1,400-foot long chairlift ride. The Indian Village also received renovations to its Turtle Mound, the home of cultural performances during the Fair. Since the beginning of renovations, State Fair attendance has grown by more than 28 percent and non-Fair event estimated attendance has grown 57 percent from 2016 to 2017.

The 136,000-square-foot Exposition Center serves as the largest indoor event space north of New York City between Boston and Cleveland. With 110,000 square feet of clear-span floor space, The Expo Center is set to host major shows and special events, including car, boat, and consumer and trade shows. During the 2018 New York State Fair, the massive venue will be transformed into a temporary ice rink as a centerpiece to host hockey, figure skating, broomball and other attractions to showcase its versatility. It will also host the new I LOVE NEW YORK exhibit, which highlights some of the state's major outdoor recreation and key tourism locations through interactive exhibits.

The Expo Center, with 110,000 square feet of clear-span floor space, has the capacity to hold more than 500, 10'-by-10' trade show booths. The massive venue, which also features 4,000 retractable seats, will attract major shows and special events, including car, boat, and RV shows, pet expos, consumer and trade shows, home and garden shows, tech expos and more-many of which were previously unable to come to upstate New York due to the lack of suitable space. The Expo Center increases the amount of available indoor space on the Fairgrounds to more than 450,000 square feet.

An EZ-Pass Plus tolling system and cash lanes are also new to the Orange and Brown Lots this year. In addition, new LED lighting, sidewalks, crosswalks and pedestrian refuge areas were added to make it even easier to walk to and from the Fair. Three new bus stops with bus shelters were also installed, along with signage and an extensive drainage system for the entire lot.

The improvements mark the completion of Phase 2 of Governor Cuomo's revitalization plan. Phase 1 of the transformation plan included a full-service RV park for 313 campers and a larger, relocated Midway area that allows for more open space for Fair programming and non-Fair events. A new Main Gate entrance was also built, along with a new exhibit area for the New York State Police, and the Sky Ride, a 1,400-foot long chairlift ride. The Indian Village also received renovations to its Turtle Mound, the home of cultural performances during the Fair. Since the beginning of renovations, State Fair attendance has grown by more than 28 percent and non-Fair event estimated attendance has grown 57 percent from 2016 to 2017.
