Café Mars is an unusual Italian restaurant in the Gowanus neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, opening in February 2023. Chefs Paul D'Avino (wd~50, aska) and Jorge Olarte (Ssam Bar, Ma Peche, Cafe Boulud) are taking a all-encompassing look at Italian food, by looking at not just a region in Italy, but everywhere Italian food has a foothold. While that includes happily drawing on all parts of Italy, we also look at what makes unique the many different subsets of Italian-American food, be it Brooklyn, New Orleans, Philadelphia, or St. Louis, as well as countries like Argentina or the itameshi cuisine of Japan.
We are doing it in a kind and fun atmosphere, that still takes a deep approach to food, beverage, and hospitality in very thoughtful and intentional way.
The wine program is currently being developed by Aria Dorsey (Rolf & Daughters, Folk, DBGB-DC ) and the cocktail program by John debary (PDT, Momofuku Group).
