BREAKING: Gemma Open for Business

A normal summer weekend in New York City is slow. A semi-holiday summer weekend is very slow. Not the best time to open a restaurant. Or is it? A DBTH commenter dropped a weekend bomb on us, saying

Gemma the restaurant at the Bowery hotel opened last night (Friday 29th) - no tastings, no private parties, just simply opened the doors at 6:30 - by 9:30 the place was packed! The food is delicious, the wine fantastic and the service impeccable - especially considering it was the first night. It is a gorgeous space with no detail left unconsidered - like the hotel it is a knock-out! Where were you?
Unfortunately, we were away on official DBTH business. And the praise seems a bit too praisey, if you catch our drift. However, the space is very well done. We attended a small get together there a few weeks back. Thankfully, we can now rest peacefully knowing Gemma is ready to go.

Went to Gemma on Monday night. I live down the block on Lafayette so decided to try it out and see if it was worthy of being a new neighborhood spot. I went relatively early (630) but the place started to fill up pretty quickly. The Branzini was DELICIOUS. It was so good that it trumped everything else we got. The pizze d' salsicia (or spicy sausage pizza) was just okay. The one at Pala is much better. The almond cake with raspberry puree dessert tasted alright. Nothing special. Overall I liked the place. The cheese was fresh, the prosciutto, sobresata were fresh and delicious and the wine was reasonable and paired well with our meal. I will definitely go back again. The service had more to be desired. The service was like dating an investment banker... it seemed that they forgot about us, then remembered and would be all over us, then forget about us again and on and on. I think the service was just suffering from the new opening pains that all restaurants go through though.
