Piora Restaurant Review

: There's a refined effortlessness that surrounds the food and service at Piora. Beginning with the understated dining room and gracious hosts, you know a tremendous amount of thought went into every detail. But the reason you're here is because chef Chris Cipollone is a wizard with vegetables. Take his market salad, which at any given time can number over twenty kinds, some cooked, some raw, some dehydrated and crisped. Or his roasted carrots over yogurt garnished with a salted powder that you're later told was ham. Order the monkey bread, served with seaweed butter as an homage to owner Simon Kim. Have the sommelier walk you through the wine list and let him choose something unexpected, then move on to mains. Bucatini has the just-right bite and balance of crab to chili, and you'll want the Rohan duck with farro and black garlic. A side of roasted sunchokes are sweet like candy and addiction-forming, but you should anticipate dessert: Pavlova with passion fruit, the tang a fine palate cleanser. Signature cocktails are pricey (so is the wine list) but worth a sip or three.
