Asian-influenced Italian

Sesamo offers modern Italian cuisine with Asian influences. The first of its kind, our concept is rooted in our respect for Italian cuisine preparations, and appreciation for our Asian heritage and home cooking. Indulge in the ingredient-driven seasonal menu for an intimate evening with someone special, a bottomless brunch with your friends, or a fun celebration with a large group. Located in Hell’s Kitchen, close to Times Square and Radio City Music Hall, Sesamo will make your experience an unforgettable one.

When Italy Meets Asia

Inspired by Itameshi (Japanese for “Italian”) cuisine, Sesamo expands on the concept and draws inspiration from many different regional influences in Asia. Our menu changes seasonally and offers gluten-free and vegan options.

Our Chef

Recently featured on Netflix’s new series “SNACK vs CHEF”,  award-winning Chef Sandy Hall leading the kitchen in Sesamo, crafts a unique Italian Asian fusion menu. He transforms fresh and, locally-sourced produce into thoughtful dishes.

Food that restores, and revives.

Located in the residential part of Hell’s Kitchen, Sesamo is your quintessential neighborhood restaurant where locals feel like families, and first-timers feel like regulars.
