Bourdain featured this restaurant on his show Monday night. The restaurant is known for a fish risotto which seemed absolutely spectacular in the way it was prepared. This is the Italian website for the restaurant: http://www.daromano.it/ There are several photos on it showing the arborio being tossed literally 18 inches in the air out of the pan, almost like tossing pizza dough in the air. There is also a video which includes a few seconds of the rice being tossed. There is virtually no mention of it on here or elsewhere other than several internet references as a tourist restaurant-which is not encouraging. Still, the risotto is intriguing as is their having the only wood fired grill in Venice. I should note here than I am personally obsessed with risotto having once made this now infamous post: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/288918 With an upcoming trip to Italy this is a stop that I cannot ignore.
Has anyone been to Da Romano? Did you have the fish risotto?
