Crispo, New York City

January 23, 2012

Frank Crispo serves imaginative delicious Italian-Mediterranean fare in his eponymous trattoria in the West Village. Go early, as the dark and cozy room fills up quickly.

We ordered a bottle of the rich, smooth and full bodied Super Tuscan 09 ($45)  Argiano “NC” Toscana as we perused the reasonably priced menu.

The roasted beet salad is plentiful and comes topped with a warm goat cheese fritter ($8.95). Although the menu described the caramelized brussels sprouts accompanied by toasted almonds and maple, instead the almonds were just slivered and the sweetness was from honey. Whatever, the sprouts were mouth-wateringly delicious($8.95), and shouldn’t be missed.

That super Tuscan blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, and sangiovese also stood up to the rich lamb Bolognese over fettuccine, topped with parmiagiano ($20.50) and the tender orecchiette with broccoli rabe and sausage ($19.95).

A worthy trip that won’t break the bank.
