Crispo Restaurant Review

: Frank Crispo has been helming the kitchens at various New York restaurants for years. Now at his own place, his inventive Mediterranean dishes begin with antipasti ranging from fennel sausage-stuffed sage leaves to mozzarella risotto balls. The affettati choices include hot and sweet soppressata, provolone and caponata as well as smoked speck. When it comes to pasta, try the black truffle ricotta ravioli. For meatier fare, the crisp duck breast, accompanied by figs and port, is a winner. The back garden is the perfect place to bring a date on summer evenings.
