The sister restaurant to Downtown favorite the Factory Kitchen and one of the most anticipated new openings for this year, the inspiration behind Officine Brera comes from classic recipes of cucina povera and the countryside along the River Po Valley in Northern Italy.
The menu showcases chef Angelo Auriana’s view on authentic Italian flavors while incorporating his unique twist to make dishes accessible to a US audience.
The main focus of the restaurant's open kitchen is the different sources of fire, including a wood oven, rotisserie and wood grill. Menu highlights include grilled meats, risotto, spit roasted poultry and fowl, slow braised hunter-style meats, grilled fish and crustacean and market-driven vegetables.
Handmade potato gnocchi, melted castelmagno cheese fonduta and chives; arborio rice, Luganega rope sausage, cotechino and grana padano; grilled turbot filet, escarole, mussels, clams and Italian parsley; slow braised beef shoulder, root vegetables, anchovy-oil, potatoes and natural jus; and torta di riso: baked rice cake, Meyer lemon mascarpone, raisins and seasonal citrus.
