CRISPO review

mrnyc | Jan 31, 2005 08:09 PM

we live basically across the street and after all this time it was our first visit. go figure.

spouse had maple/pignoli brussels sprouts as an app and a proscutto pear and gorgonzola salad as an entree. both were super.

i had citrus white anchovy app and a pork, rabe and polenta braciole special. the latter was very rich and delicious. some parts of the pork were overdone, but overall the meat was the proper flaky/melting combination, moist and flavorful.

comfortable enough seating inside. its a warm place. mixed age groups which was refreshing as i expected all young people for some reason, and also very prompt professional service.

with a couple glasses of wine each ($8/ea) and coffee for dessert the total was around $80 w/o tip. i'd go back esp as the pasta dishes looked like they needed my attention next time!
