Cipollina Restaurant Review

: The owners of Jeffrey’s restaurant also offer this more casual bistro setting across the street, and while Cipollina’s glass display case of take-home prepared foods has disappeared, the culinary finesse still remains in the kitchen. Drop in for a specialty java drink or a dessert, like the lavender crème brûlée. On sunny days, we can't resist lunching alfresco on yellowfin tuna confit or going all-out with a rich croque monsieur. Thin charred pizzas from the wood-burning oven are a favorite any time of day (try the prosciutto with white truffle oil and Gruyère), and the mussels in white wine with anchovies and capers make an ideal start to dinner. For entrées, we gravitate toward the rich cioppino or, when feeling more adventurous, the braised antelope with broccoli gratin.
