Biricchino Restaurant Review

: One of the best places for Italian bites near Madison Square Garden, Biricchino is a neighborhood favorite and boasts its own in-house meat shop that supplies restaurants around the country. The daily-made sausage is the biggest draw, with varieties like wild boar and red wine, rabbit and mushroom, and duck and Grand Marnier. Other entrées and pastas are standards, though the grilled Berkshire pork chop in porcini sauce, and handmade veal and mortadella ravioli are worth considering. True meat devotees will want to visit the attached shop next door.
