Frasca Food and Wine Restaurant Review

: When Frasca Food and Wine opened its doors in 2004, devout foodies, jet-setting tourists and serious wine aficionados heralded the Northern Italian fare turned out by chef/co-owner Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson and master sommelier/co-owner Bobby Stuckey's show-stopping wine list, a 65-page tome that runs from obscure indigenous wonders to the best bottles from Piedmont and Tuscany. Your server will know more about wine than many a certified sommelier, and can deftly guide amateurs and seasoned oenophiles through the grapevine of possibilities. The dining room, adorned with starched white linens, Riedel stemware, vases of fresh flowers and a striking wine wall, is elegant and intimate, but refreshingly absent of snobbery. And if you want to get up close and personal with the chefs, you can book a table for two in the kitchen. Effortlessly polished and affable servers help guests navigate their way through Mackinnon-Patterson's constantly changing menu, a tribute to the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy that also relies on a bumper crop of foodstuffs from local farmers, ranchers and purveyors. You can bet that the salumi plate --- an artfully arranged smorgasbord of cured meats, sliced in-house --- will be first on their list of must-haves. From there, embark on a gastronomic odyssey of inspired dishes via a four- or seven-course tasting menu, or order à la carte (Monday wine dinners, meanwhile, are a relative bargain). You might encounter “crudo” of South Pacific kingfish; cannelloni with Maine lobster, squash and blood orange; and rib-eye of Mishima Ranch Wagyu. To end the meal, consider seasonal fruit crostatas or house-made chocolates.
