Briscola is reminiscent of a Roman-style social club with espresso-colored leather chairs, creamy paint palette, rustic, exposed brick walls, and lighting diffused through linen shades creating a warm, welcoming ambience.
The lounge is adorned with classic Italian film posters in playful 50’s and 60’s cinematic-style. And an over-sized wooden table, used as meat station, takes center stage in the dining room. Chef Massimo Riggio, Executive Chef of Briscola, is inspired by his Sicilian roots to create and prepare traditional Italian dishes at Briscola.
The menu promises “abbondanza” or an abundance of crowd pleasers. With options like hand-cut spaghetti Chitarra Del Mar with shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams glazed in a spicy lobster broth, Briscola is designed both in look and palate for “le dolce vita”—the good life.
