Table at Bricco: A Review

by: Sara Bozich

3 Comments

I hadn’t realized that Bricco’s butcher shop, Olewine’s, had been closed for a year — oops. Luckily for me, however, I was invited to attend a media preview dinner in that space this past Saturday — which is now known as Table at Bricco, a private dining room affording Chef Jason Viscount an opportunity to play with prix fixe menus and to go beyond the limits of the larger scale restaurant.

table at bricco

The space is cozy, with a long table seating just 14 at its center. It’s own private entrance is on Chestnut Street (or, a Bricco employee will kindly lead you through Bricco’s kitchen to the space if you – like me – didn’t pay proper attention). The opposite wall from the entrance is decorated with wooden wine crates and an enclosed vertical wine display. Peek between bottles, and you’ll see part of the restaurant’s kitchen.

Chef Viscount said he sees the space as ideal for specialty dinners, like craft beer pairing dinners and tequila dinners, tapas and BYOB events, as well as privately booked events and dinners.

To entice us, Saturday’s dinner was a multi-course prix fixe dinner and wine tasting. Our wine guide was Todd Hopwood, territory manager for Terlato Wines, which is based out of Chicago. Todd was excellent company on our food and wine journey, generous both with his selections and knowledge.
