Those who describe Paprika's cuisine are fond of oxymorons. The New York Press called it "fancy peasant food," for instance, and the restaurant refers to itself on its website as "rustic-chic." Against all grammatical odds, owner Savr Zaraev has managed to blend the elegant with the folksy, with flavorful results.
The restaurant's secret to embracing contradictions lies in expert craftsmanship. Many of Paprika's Northern Italian dishes feature handmade pasta, such as the gnocchi and the pappardelle with oxtail ragu. And when ingredients aren't whipped up in-house, they are carefully sourced—chickens aren't raised in the kitchen, but the menu still features organic poultry. Even the decor emphasizes that human touch, with furniture and light fixtures handcrafted by artisans and forks forged tableside by a medieval blacksmith.
