THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Eccolo Restaurant Review:


Chef Christopher Lee left Chez Panisse and opened up his own casually upscale Northern Italian restaurant on bustling, shop-studded Fourth Street. A long zinc bar (featuring an Italian-only wine list) splits two dining areas joined by dark hardwood floors, sophisticated urban light fixtures, and one retractable roof. Starters include a chopped salad of radicchio tossed with romaine, pine nuts, currants and a savory, tangy blue cheese vinaigrette. Entrées such as the spit-roasted pork loin or grass-fed, grilled veal chop evoke the rustic flavors of Tuscany; daily fish specials showcase seasonal produce and preparations from farther south on the boot. Daily desserts like a plate of strawberries, mascarpone cheese and brown sugar exemplify the restaurant's simple, seasonal style. Service is unpredictable, so focus on the food and give yourself plenty of time to dine.
