Went to Officine Brera for dinner last night. Had planned to go several times previously but due to last minute changes, we never did made it. Restaurant is in an old converted factory and is beautifully done with out door patio. Nice bar area which does not need reservations. Our reservation was at 7 for 4 people and it was about 1/2 full when we sat down. Became very crowded when we got done at around 9pm. Owned and run by the same people as Factory Kitchen.
Ordered 5 starters/appetizers, 2 pasta and a steak to share family style.
Frisceu, vegetable sage fritters. Did not expect much but was very good. 5/5
Calamari salad. Good size with lots of whole baby squid. 5/5
Lingua Salmistrata, picked beef tongue with salsa verde. One of the best beed tongue I ever had. 5/5
Polpo, grilled octopus salad. Okay. 3/5
Fagiolini, blue lake green beans salad. Good. 4/5
Pappardelle al Nero, handcut black ink pasta with octopus ragu. Good. 4/5
Foiade Bergamasche, handcut whole wheat pasta with goose ragu. Fantastic pasta with great flavors. Definitely the best dish of the evening. 5/5
Carne Bovina, 14 day dry aged prime ribeye with salsa verde, grilled vidalia onions and roasted potatoes. A little under seasoned. 4/5
Castagnole, donuts with salty bourbon caramel sauce. 4/5
Torrone, honey + nut nougatine semifreddo. 4/5
Serving size were good for sharing among 4 of us. All in all, fantastic dinner and highly recommended.
