Barolo Grill Restaurant Review

: Successfully capturing an elegantly rustic, Tuscan feel with its earthy color scheme, Barolo Grill continues the theme with an inspired menu of Northern Italian specialties. The $65 tasting menu, drawing upon the cuisines of Piedmont, Tuscany and the Veneto, is a chef’s selection of five courses (optionally paired with wine) that changes seasonally, but might include tempura-fried salt cod, caramelized Brussels sprout salad, herb-marinated poussin, house-made mortadella-stuffed pasta with sweet peppers, pistachios and guanciale, and, for dessert, warm carrot cake. The à la carte portion of the menu touts familiar Italian dishes, but executive chef Darrel Truett adds contemporary twists, turning out everything from potato gnocchi mingling with braised lamb shoulder to pan-seared grouper plated with whole roasted sunchokes and braising greens to the polenta-crusted veal tenderloin with fried sweet semolina fritters. The wine list --- easily one of the best in the city --- favors Italian varietals, several of which are offered by the glass.
