Osteria Il Sogno Restaurant Review

: Andrew Weissman’s Il Sogno is still the go-to restaurant in the Pearl Brewery development, with his The Sandbar Fish House & Market coming in a close second. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available to diners willing to tolerate prime-time lines (no reservations are taken), though a seat may sometimes be scored at the bar facing the action in the open kitchen. The menu has been tweaked to include more dishes from the kitchen’s wood-burning oven. Starters of special interest include an inventive antipasto selection, available in three-dish and five-dish portions. Fish dishes such as the pan-seared whitefish with white bean purée tend toward the elegant and ethereal, while meats like osso buco are more down to earth. The plate of crisp sweetbreads with charred vegetable sits somewhere in between---and could use a drizzle of something tart-sweet. But pizzas such as the prosciutto and asparagus emerge from the oven proudly puffed and in need of nothing. The savvy sommelier can be called upon to match a wine from the regionally based, all-Italian list to any of the above.
