Pane e Vino, or bread and wine, is owned by Gia's brother, Steven, but it's still very much a Fracassetti collaboration; Gian created the bar's menu, and Gia helped with the interior design. The space itself is quite small and very intimate, and feels like a really chic private club.
Mr Minx and I recently attended a media tasting for an introduction to the bar's cocktails and several types of snacks.
|Mini burrata, fava, prosciutto, and tomato salad.
|Sous vide calamari, rapini, tomatoes
|Porcini, prosciutto, and gorgonzola flatbread
|Chicken drumsticks, homemade spicy harissa, bleu cheese and celery
|Giant buffalo/ricotta meatball with rustic garlic toast
|Piadina with grilled steak, Stracchino, arugula, harissa, pickled onions.
|Nutella bread pudding, banana ice cream
More of everything, actually. It was all really delicious, from cocktails to sweets. We look forward to going back and sampling more of both food and beverage. And maybe another of those terrific meatballs (or two).
