Working as a successful chef, restaurateur and author, Jonathan Waxman has graced such prestigious kitchens as Chez Panisse in Berkeley and Michael's in Los Angeles. Waxman went on to open his own restaurant in New York City — Jams, described by the NY Times as 'a culinary comet', as well as the famed Washington Park. Today, Waxman is the chef and owner of Barbuto in Manhattan's West Village. His first cookbook, A Great American Cook, was published in 2007 and his second book, 'Italian My Way', was released in April of 2011.
He participated in two seasons of Top Chef Masters on Bravo, where he earned the nickname 'Obi Wan Kenobi' and Jonathan Gold of the LA Times has referred to Jonathan as 'the Eric Clapton of chefs'. Giving back is important to Waxman and he works closely with many charities including City Meals on Wheels and Alex's Lemonade Stand. He currently lives in Manhattan with his wife and three children.
Barbuto continues to be a favorite for both locals and visitors, who enjoy the restaurant's casual sophistication and neighborhood feel. The restaurant occupies an airy garage space on the ground floor of Industria Superstudios on Washington Street, between Jane and West 12th Streets. With garage doors that can be opened and closed, guests can enjoy a sidewalk table in the warm months. The simple décor and open kitchen add to the restaurant's warm and inviting feel.
Street parking is available nearby, and there is also a parking facility on Jane St. closer to the West Side Highway.
