Coppa: Fun Diverse Brunch Today

opinionatedchef | Sep 22, 2013 04:17 PM

Had a fun brunch at Coppa today. Found out that co-owners Jamie and Ken, are just about to open their Toro NYC. I don't know how much their absence affects their Boston restnts; maybe , for example, Jamie is not often present at Coppa anyway......

We really enjoyed what we sampled on this, our third visit, but there were also a few major errors noted. Oysters in rhubarb mignonette had a really neat unusual element (that i forgot to ask about) but they were tepid and served on salt mounds and not ice. Horrors. Cheesy Grits were waaaay over-cheesed (but My Love had no such complaint) and the very special star anise- tinged bacon was way too salty. And the otherwise delicious pizza was topped with arugula that was inedibly over-salted. Meanwhile the lardo on toast was lovely, and the
Kampachi Crudo, covered with slivered green olives and olive dashi- was as delectable as to require a second order. And perhaps the biggest surprise for me was the jam! I am not a sweet jam/jelly gal but this (house-made, like almost every element at Coppa except the Iggy's bread) jam, made with yuzu and husk cherries, was savory-sweet and addictive.

Service was as friendly as can be.And indeed, aside from the food and good bar program, i would send Boston visitors here w/o hesitation beCAUSE of the consistent and very pleasant welcome offered by all the staff here. All ages, plenty of toddlers, and it feels like a big warm family.
