THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Ami Restaurant Review

: It’s a classic neighborhood bistro: Warm brick walls, industrial elements, generous table spacing, a loft-like feeling, and presto, you have Amí. Stop at the friendly bar in front for a drink, then it’s on to savor a basically Mediterranean menu. Partners Derron Delaney and Chef Gerry Dimma are the team. Dimma turns out perfect gnocchi with Bolognese sauce, with plump, tender little nubbins nestled under a creamy rich version of this homemade sauce. Grilled duck breast was perfectly seasoned and cooked just to the pink stage, while braised pork was tender and moist. Tomato bread salad takes a page straight from Tuscan panzanella. The kitchen’s style is homey but sophisticated, with plentiful portions and intriguing flavors. Vegetarians will enjoy the style, with such dishes as penne pasta with broccoli and wild mushrooms at lunch or linguine with artichokes, summer squash and tomatoes in white wine and garlic. Desserts are a constant change-up, but by now you’ve got the flavor of the place. The adventurous wine list roams the planet, offering many good choices by the glass as well as reasonably priced value selections. The list demonstrates thought, care and commitment to quality and value. An early bar menu on Fridays starts at 5:30, and features such dishes as mini crab cakes, panecetta-wrapped shrimp, and smoked salmon at prices ranging from 75 cents to $2 per piece.
