Make your reservations. NOW. It take weeks to get in and believe me, you don’t want to miss this BYOB restaurant. We have taken to making future reservations after every meal at Bottega just to ensure we snare a spot.
The menu changes frequently so everything was new at our recent visit. The consensus? We would absolutely order everything again. And again. And again.
Lamb tartare — toothsome, mild and delicious.
Grilled radicchio salad with gorgonzola — THIS is a salad I will dream about for months to come. Seriously. I am still thinking about that lovely combo of bitter grilled lettuce and sweet pillows of salty, creamy blue cheese. Salad dreams do come true, apparently.
Skate wing with brown butter and capers — buttery, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
Bavette steak with red wine sauce — simple, meaty and perfect.
My dinner of the grilled salad and steak easily ranks among the top 10 meals I’ve enjoyed in the past 12 months. Probably in the top 3. It’s quite possibly #1.
As you can see … oops …
