Del Posto Enoteca Review (Longish)

jdmetz | | Nov 27, 2006 04:16 PM

Made a same day reservation and ate at the Enoteca/Bar at Del Posto last night and got a seriously good deal. The Enoteca is like a mini restaurant right next to the main dining room, so you feel as if you are still in the restaurant and not at some side area crammed next to the bar. Everything is reasonably priced on its own, but the real deal, for my money, is the $41, 4-course prix fixe. For that you get a choice of antipast, pasta (primi), meat (secondo) and dessert (plus you can get wine pairings with every course for $19). I had excellent coppa with broccoli and sweet shallots, delicious orrichette with (surprisingly) spicy swiss chard and sausage, steak braciole with cauliflower puree, and a hazelnut crostada with sour cherries - all excellent. Also tried the calamari, flash fried in a rice flour batter, so they were crisp, but light and substantial without being rubbery; ravioli, possibly stuffed with duck (don't remember exactly, but they were great); and the gnocchi, which were light and melted in my mouth and were covered in an incredible bolognese. Service was very pleasant. My only complaint is that the courses came out of the kitchen a little quickly, especially considering the bar area was pretty empty. But, this is a slight quibble since the food was all so good and I feel like I found a real steal for the price.
