Fine Italian fare awaits you at the downtown offshoot of Brio, a newcomer to the culinary scene in the Flatiron District. I had a nice meal there last week, that satisfied my Italian desires.
Grilled calamari had a beautiful char, the accompanying mushrooms were sweet and delicious.
I love burrata. Brio serves a nice dish of fresh burrata with prosciutto. Silky goodness.
Bucatini All’Amatriciana with perciatelli, guanciale ham, vidalia onions, San marzano plum tomatoes, and pecorino romano was al dente and tasty.
A special of seabass topped with prosciutto wrapped shrimp was nothing too crazy. A sprinkle of lemon enhanced the flavor, but the dish was a bore.
Risotto with mushrooms and scallops was excellent. The fresh scallops bringing the flavor of the sea, the mushrooms, brought a nice earthiness.
End with a classic tiramisu, and your night of Italian delights in the Flatiron will be complete.
