THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Gusto Ristorante e Bar Americano Restaurant Review

: More contemporary than charming, Gusto's simple elegance derives from the sleek retro black and white design that pays homage to Italian films of the fifties and sixties. The first course sets the stage for the night: choose from crisp fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with oozing mozzarella, savory grilled octopus (which is served whole), and prosciutto and figs on focaccia so fresh you'll swear it was just flown in from Genoa. The substantial entrées include couscous alla trapanese, capesante con scafata (scallops with fava beans, peas and mint) or agnello brodettato (tender lamb roasted with artichokes, pecorino and lemon). On weekends, the well-stocked bar can produce an apéritif or digestif. One caveat: reservations are a must.
