Luxury lifestyle media group Haute Living, alongside Bertaud Belieu Rosé honored the cover star Debra Messing at the celebrity favorite MAMO Restaurant in SoHo on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017.
On the heels of her wrapping filming on the Dirty Dancing TV remake with Abigail Breslin, the upcoming fall revival of Will and Grace after an eleven-year hiatus, and perhaps even taking on a new role executive producing passion projects, Debra Messing proves she is sure to shine no matter what the stage.
As guests made their way upstairs for the intimate cocktail party, they were greeted with Bertaud Belieu rosé before feasting on a culinary showcase of MAMO’s finest, from gazpacho Italiano and rum and lemon-marinated salmon to its signature truffled focaccia.
Notable VIPs in attendance included Jean Shafiroff, Lucia Hwong Gordon, Larry Milstein, Ambassador Paolo Zampolli, Haute Living Publisher Seth Semilof, and Lauren Roberts.
As a native New Yorker, Messing revealed “It’s been a huge honor. It’s a beautiful magazine – chic and sophisticated, it was a pleasure to do it and I’m really proud of the whole spread,” when asked about ‘gracing’ the New York cover. In the issue, she opens up about media as not only a barometer of the particularly charged socio-political climate, but as a mechanism of navigating it using comic relief. Speaking to her inherent activist, she goes on to use her craft as a stage, a precursor to dialogue on pressing cultural issues. “Everything happening now will be fodder for the comedy.”
MAMO continues to draw locals and visitors alike to New York’s bustling SoHo neighborhood. Run by Italian restauranteur Mike “Mamo” Mammoliti, it maintains the same authentic feel and dedication to Provençal flavors as its Antibes namesake MAMO Le Michelangelo. It continues to attract a wide array of celebrities, including Rhianna, Magic Johnson, Alexander Wang, Diane Kruger, Samuel L. Jackson, Gigi Hadid, Beyonce and Jay Z.
To complement the flavorful dishes, MAMO also boasts an impressive cocktail menu, featuring specials such as the smooth whiskey-orange bitters cocktail Lo Spione, the refreshingly fruity Tequila cocktail Fragolita, or the one-of-a-kind Martini Al Tartufo (truffle martini). MAMO’s signature Negroni and Spritz remain favorites on the cocktail menu, as does the tart yet sweet homemade Limoncello. In addition to the cocktail program, MAMO also has an extensive wine list of carefully selected French and Italian wines to complement the cuisine.
MAMO offers diners traditional southern Italian/French cuisine in an intimate yet elegant setting. The bi-level restaurant includes a casual lounge on the ground floor and a formal dining room upstairs. Both spaces capture the Riviera’s “sense of home” with original family photos and oversized vintage movie posters. The decor also incorporates classic New York-inspired touches such as exposed brick walls. The intimate downstairs lounge is available for private bookings, and is the perfect space for a holiday gathering or celebration.
