Frascati Restaurant Review

: The menu at this neighborhood joint is a mix-and-match of Californian and Mediterranean favorites. A warm Black Mission fig dish is a lovely starter when adorned with prosciutto, rich blue cheese and a tangy balsamic gastrique. Pan-roasted mussels are enriched with chorizo and an earthy oregano broth. Classic rigatoni Bolognese with a crown of freshly grated Parmesan will satisfy those looking for a hearty, comforting main course. Tender butter-poached lobster tail is delivered atop a pillow of asparagus lemon risotto. Pork tenderloin served alongside bacon mashed potatoes with a Dijon mustard sauce may be Frascati's most addictive dish. Desserts such as black and white chocolate bread pudding demand attention, but don't miss out on the more subtle crème brûlée. Tightly fit tables seem cozy rather than invasive in the downstairs main dining room. Upstairs, private dining rooms offer intimate nooks for particularly special occasions.
