Coppia Restaurant Review

: "Coppia" is the Italian word for "couple" or "pairing," and here you’ll find wines matched with foods that raise the bar far above a desultory cheese or salumi plate. A floor-to-ceiling wine wall dominates the cozy space, dividing it into two rooms: a lighter, outer area where guests may watch the busy street scene, and an interior, quieter one. Every dish on the menu has a recommended wine partner, but choosing your own is also an option. You can always go with a creditable cheese or charcuterie platter, but you might want to venture into small plates such as a golden beet soufflé with tarragon cream or marinated mushrooms. For large plates, consider the vitello tonnato (thinly sliced veal in a lemon and tuna sauce with a dot of pear mostarda) or pork tenderloin with creamed farro, shiitake ragù and arugula. Other choices may include scallop risotto; beef ribs with asparagus, polenta and fresh horseradish; and pappardelle with a wild boar sauce. For dessert, enjoy the panna cotta or frangipane custard tart with cherries.
