Osteria Mozza Tonight- Suggestions? Ideas?

Allright I looked through the board, and I did not see any specifics nor pics discussing what to get at Osteria Mozza. Most of the information came during the opening, and I want to know who has been there recently. If so, recommendations?

  1. Hope you have a reservation!

    All reports seem to indicate the mozzarella or "Nancy" bar is the best thing to do. Sit there, and peruse the offerings. I don't think you can reserve the Nancy Bar, but people with reservations have first crack at any open seats, I believe.

      Yes, reservation is at 8:15pm..... I am holding my breath if i get seated at that time due to the ugly reports about waiting. Full report in the next few days....

        i think they have worked out the reservation kinks. my first visit a couple months ago ended with me waiting nearly an hr past my reservation for a table.

        however, i was seated within 5mins of my reservation during my 2nd trip back a couple weeks ago.

      1. grilled octopus
        burrata w/ bacon
        burricotti w/ braised artichokes

        1. Definitely, definitely, definitely get Nancy's caprese.

          1. The guinea fowl is my favorite. It's essentially an update on a chicken-liver crostini, with a braised bird dallopped on top. A great dish.

            Nancy Bar, if you have the option. It's fun to feel like you're in the middle of the action.
