Part restaurant, part art gallery, part performance venue. Pepela aims to capture the spirit of a contemporary European spot, with an emphasis on Georgian and Mediterranean influences. The two-story Park Avenue townhouse indulges visitors with a menu of hearty comfort foods inspired by Old World recipes. These dishes include thin slices of eggplant rolled in a walnut paste and orders of khinkali—traditional, meat-filled Georgian dumplings. To accompany the cuisine, bartenders pour wines from a list that includes several French and Italian options, but mainly highlights Georgian producers. The bartenders even make cocktails using chacha: an infused Georgian brandy.
In addition to the dining area’s white brick walls, large, banquet-worthy tables, and a stage area for the occasional live band, Pepela also includes sections with a bit more of an upscale touch. The lounge section’s marble-topped bar, glittering chandeliers, and ornately regal armchairs and loveseat demonstrate this air of refinement. Pepela also features an onsite art gallery, which routinely swaps out the collection to better feature new pieces and different colored exit signs.
