In a region with so many seasonal restaurants, Grissini stands out for being open year-round and for its refined Tuscan food. The space sports white-clothed tables and a stone-lined fireplace. In warmer summer months, they utilize a patio with umbrellas and a white picket fence. Chef Romann Dumorne’s menu might include classic Italian flavors like mussels steamed in white wine butter sauce or artichoke pizza with pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, and Kalamata olives. The dessert menu continues this theme by including options such as tiramisu. Most of the wine list draws from Italy, though France and America are in evidence.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
