This place really lived up to the hype. I was craving something rich and satisfying and this place was recommended. I had the Foie Gras Tortellini. It was the best thing I have EVER tasted. I wish I ordered a full portion instead of the half. My friend had a Caesar salad which I sampled, and the lettuce quality was... More

Bar La Grassa is industrial chic but warm at the same time with fine dining service and menu but laid back atmosphere. Other than it being a little loud during dinner rushes, there are no drawbacks to making this spot a must-eat stop while in town or a local staple (and even when noisy, you can still easily converse with...

If you have never been to BLG you are truly missing out on life. This is my absolute favorite restaurant- and my husband even had BLG as a part of his plan when he proposed to me. So many dishes are great here, but my absolute favorite is the penne rigate with shrimp in addition to the soft eggs and... More

My maiden voyage to this establishment exceeded my expectations. Pasta to die for. Our group shared three dishes: Gnocchi with Cauliflower and Orange (spicy, rich, phenomenal), Pappardelle with Veal Ragu (silky, flavorful and sumptuous) and Red Wine Spaghetti with Pine Nuts (a unique flavor profile well worth a try!). The restaurant was bustling and had a great vibe. Professional, amiable... More

Had a lovely early Sunday dinner with friends. Waiter was exceptionally helpful and thoughtful (told me not to drink limoncello on an empty stomach...). Selections were delicious, well-prepared and gorgeous presentation. Servings were generous. The Beet salad was wonderful if you like beets. Orange-Cauliflower Gnocchi is always a favorite. The seafood filet of the day was delicious (changes daily). The... More

I had a great meal at Bar La Grassa, it has a hip downtown feel without being pretentious. We ordered small plates and shared but still had left overs. The lobster dishes were my favorites

I have eaten here on several occasions and this place never disappoints. The food is always top notch and the service is seasoned and personable. My one and only complaint is that it is VERY loud and hard to have conversations with your table mates. A reservation is a must on pretty much any night if you want to eat... More

A friend of mine made the reservation as I came in town for a visit. We went on a weekday night for dinner, the place is packed. Vibrant and smells good. Food: this is not your typical (family) Italian -- with big servings and large portion. [Well, maybe there are big portions, but we ordered the small plate, for more... More
