Dear fellow Chowhounds:
Bari seems to be fairly far off Chowhounds’ desired destinations. I did my homework, yet found few listings for Bari in the past year. I’ll be there for a day and a half next month.
My train arrives in Bari at 13:02. After checking into my hotel, I’ll need a place still open for lunch (“dinner” to Southerners). I’ll be visiting the Basilica of St. Nicholas. Are there recommendable places in the Citta Vecchia? Is it safe to linger in the Citta Veccia?
Otherwise, I’m looking for regional cooking, and on Friday seafood. So tell me your judgement about these recommendations:
MICHELIN ITALIA 2010 recommends:
-- La Pignata, corso Vittorio Emanuele 173
-- * Bacco, coros Vittorio Emanuele II, 126
-- Ai 2 Ghiottoni, via Putignani 11
-- Al Soros Preferito, via Vito Nicola de Nicolo
-- Osteria dell Travi “Il Buco, largo Chyrlia 12
FRED PLOTKIN, Italy for the Gourmet Traveler, recommends:
-- Lo Sprofondo, corso Vittrio Emanuele 111
-- Al Focolare da Emilio, Via Principe
CHOWHOUNDERS HAVE MENTIONED
-- Le Vecchio Mura
--Di Cosimo, Via Modugno Giovanni 31, Bari
OR tell me of another recommendable place.
