Chef AJ Black, owner and restaurateur of Il Tesoro at the Terrace in Edgartown, is opening his newest venture in the upper east side of Manhattan. Opening in September 2011, Il Tesoro Ristorante and Bar will bring Mr. Black’s award-winning Italian cuisine to diners at 1578 First avenue at 82nd East, previously the home for 35 years to Primavera Ristorante. For updates or to make reservations, go online to iltesoro.net, call 508-939-3840, or stop by Il Tesoro at the Terrace.
Mr. Black designed his authentic Italian menu using the freshest local produce and meats from farms, gardens and waters of Martha’s Vineyard. His recipes have been recently published in two cookbooks, Chefs at Home, and 85 Inspirational Chefs.
Both books are available at Il Tesoro at the Terrace, located inside the Relais and Chateaux property of the Charlotte Inn at 7 South Summer street in Edgartown.
