Bar Rosso

24 Spring Street

From the creators of napa & co, Bar Rosso features a wood burning pizza oven set behind a 50 ft. bar serving an Italian tapas style menu with small plates, housemade pasta, housemade mozzarella and an impressive selection of prime meats complemented by Italian influenced side dishes and sauces. The impressive 250-label wine list focuses on the wines of Italy with a small homage to the California classics. Think homemade limonecella, sweet vermouth, grappa and a selection of unique bitters. Enjoy our quaint Spring Street outdoor patio or private dining facilities.

How lucky am I? Well, very.  I was at a special dinner this past Friday night at Bar Rosso
If you had ever been in that space before, where the old Bennett's Steakhouse was, you wouldn't recognize your stance.   A visual for you...high ceiling in the middle open space, layered stone walls at the bar, and major glass bubbled light fixtures that hang from above--but what I loved was the "fireplace-like" view from the brick oven stove in the back........There is a large bar area, which makes it a great afterwork go-to.  (Part of the name, no? Keep that in mind.)

Wanna know about the food? Sure.  Bar Rosso, with it's contemporary Italian menu, is a welcoming addition to Spring Street.  On the menu, many choices of pizza, small plates selections, and homemade pastas. Just to mention a few items to drool over.  I had an app of meatballs and gravy and it won me over.  Dinner for me was an order of slow cooked pork with lentils that melted in my mouth with a cinnamon gelato that was the perfect ending.  Great service too. 
I can promise you one thing, when the weather warms, the indoor seating won't be the only hot ticket--the front outdoor seating is going to be hard to come by.  Don't miss out. Want my advice......Come early.
