I haven't seen much on these boards about Bricco lately. We are going there soon (with friends, not our choice) and were hoping it is improved since our last experience about 4 years back, which was a disaster. We went with a large group found it overpriced, with unevenly prepared and unimaginative food (with the Big Night Timpano being the lowlight). The waiter didn't give a crap because he was already getting a fixed gratuity due to the large party. All of this coupled with a healthy dose of booze, made for a slightly testy end to the evening. Any recommendations on preferred dishes would be appreciated.
