THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bravo Cucina Restaurant Review

: Ernest and Peter Lepore believe in world peace and great food, though not necessarily in that order. Older brother Peter manages the business, while Ernest makes his own mozzarella, smokes his own salmon and dusts his silky roasted peppers with crunchy bread crumbs. He has also developed a unique healthy dining menu. Carbs, fat, protein and calories are as fine-tuned as a Stradivarius, though diners are aware only that the soups, salads, wraps, buckwheat pastas and platters, as well as a chocolate cake that took over a year to create, are tasty. Large plates include roasted halibut over Israeli couscous, cioppino, and grilled rib-eye with roasted potatoes. The family emigrated from Naples more than a century ago and owns Ferrara, a New York City landmark.
