Barbuzzo Restaurant Review

: At Barbuzzo, the modern Mediterranean restaurant in Midtown Village, chef/co-owner Marcie Turney doesn’t just proclaim a locavore bent. A chalkboard is updated daily with specific vegetable, fruit and dairy products sourced from farms in Chester and Lancaster counties, verdant spots including Green Meadow and Blue Moon Acres. Even carnivores will go for the daily farm-fresh vegetable board, which might hold thyme-scented sweet carrot coins, fig and goat cheese crostini, and green beans in a pistachio pesto. The oven turns out some of the city's best margherita pizzas, as well as pies with innovative combinations such as Brussels sprout leaves, guanciale, "secret" white sauce and truffled farm egg. Pan-seared gnocchi with pancetta, butternut squash and royal trumpet mushrooms, and the tonnarelli with clams, chourico sausage and mint are standouts among the pasta dishes. For dessert, you can't walk out without trying the Italian pudding --- chocolate-crusted salted caramel budino.
