While enjoying a delicious dinner at the very new Brio NYC recently with Ronda Carman of All the Best, she and I decided to do a He Said / She Said blog post about it. This is my version.
What struck me was that there were none of the usual problems of a new restaurant. It is not too surprising when one finds out that the owner is the son of the iconic Upper Eastside restaurant Brio. Damien Scoditti has created a great looking restaurant serving reasonably priced regional Italian food in a spectacular New York location: the corner of 21st and Broadway. Right in the shadow of the Flatiron building.
With the space designed by architect and designer Tony Chi, the airy eatery has a soaring ceiling and twenty foot windows with a view of the ever changing New York street scene. One of the things that I really liked about the dining room is in spite of the hard surfaces, it wasn’t difficult to have a conversation during dinner.
The corner table in the window, who needs a show on Broadway when it is an ever changing kaleidoscope of New Yorkers passing by?
The Bar and entrance to the restaurant is also a handy place to drop in for a quick lunch.

The molten chocolate cake. I really could have had seconds.
