Best Upscale Italian 2013

May 1, 2013


GOLD: CIOPPINO'S MEDITERRANEAN GRILL & ENOTECA

Silver: CinCin | Bronze: Q4 Ristorante | Honourable Mentions: Cibo Trattoria, La Piazza Dario

At Cioppino's (Gold) chef Pino Posteraro sticks to flawless cooking while accommodating the best of the seasons; put yourself in his hands and delight in nettles one week, fresh crab the next.

With chef Andrew Richardson, CinCin (Silver) has regained its vim, matching a renewed emphasis on modern cucina with cordial service and interesting bottles.

Q4 (Bronze), in Lumière's old spot, has been the stage for underrated chef Brad Ellis since the room reopened a year ago; will newly promoted Alexandre Jolin keep the trad-heavy menu flying?

Honourable Mentions to Cibo in the Moda Hotel and under-the-radar La Piazza Dario.
