Bocca on Baldwin - mini-review

George W. | Apr 17, 2005 10:24 AM

26 Baldwin Street - across Henry St. from Bodega.
Re-opened at the end of last year after extensive building renovations. There is booth (my preference) and banquette seating.

Sorry I am not going to do a great job in providing details since I didn't go with the intention of submitting this review.

Have been there for dinner now 4 times - have come away happy each time. The menu has an assortment of mains (~$20 range), a selection of pastas (~$15+ range) and pizzas (~$10+ range).

In the past I have tried the venison osso bucco and a veal dish, last night I felt like a steak and had the Black Angus strip. My partner ordered the rack of Ontario lamb. Both dishes were prepared to perfection by their chef Michael Luck. The accompanying vegetables were also cooked to my liking, I had grilled snow peas, orange peppers, Yukon Gold potato "logs" and the lamb was accompanied by carrots, green beans, purple potatoes (Peruvian).

We started with a warm seafood salad - calamari, shrimp, scallops, ++ - excellent and ample enough for sharing. Desserts were chosen from the "take-out" display of Dufflet Pastries.

With a $32 bottle of Shiraz, two ports and two coffees the cost exclusive of tip was about $150.
