Welcome to Natsumi Tapas

Discover Our Story

“Natsumi Tapas restaurant, bar and lounge specializes in modern Japanese-Italian fusion in a setting designed for communal dining. Owner and acclaimed restaurateur Barbara Matsumura is a leader and innovator in hospitality – having launched seven Haru locations and the original Joe’s Shanghai in Flushing – and along with her well-trained, educated and loyal staff, has brought this concept to life in the Gramercy Park neighborhood. Consulting with Italian chef Andrea Tiberi and sushi chef Hiroyuki Nagao, Matsumura has created an authentic dining experience with a menu that brings the flavors of both Italian and Japanese cuisine to the forefront. The emphasis is on small plates for grazing and larger plates for sharing – and with unique dishes such as Sashimi Tacos, Green Tea Ricotta Flatbread, and Ciao Meatballs, Natsumi Tapas seeks to provide the kind of diverse and intriguing cuisine that will have guests returning again and again.”
