Brivo -- Roslyn Heights

d
debster Jan 6, 2008 02:34 AM

Dined at Brivo last night with my husband and all I can say is Wow! The place is gorgeous and was totally packed on a Saturday night. Formerly L'Endroit for over 30 years, this is a great Northern Italian addition to the North Shore. It's a special occasion kind of place, not your average "take the kids for Southern Italian" restaurant. The chef worked at Felidia in Manhattan and if you know Lydia and Joe Bastianich and their other Manhattan restaurants, need I say more. The food, service and ambience are a cut above the rest and we never felt rushed. They also own Cippolini's in Manhasset and I think Bryant & Cooper and River Bay. Personally, I prefer Northern Italian to a place like La Parma with all the garlic and large portions. The tables are spaced nicely so you can hear yourself talk and there are two levels to dine in, the quieter rooms being upstairs. Also a great place to have a private party. If you want to spend abut $200 with wine and dessert this is the place to go.

      To start I have to say the wine selection by the glass is very good; as well as the bread selection with a trio of olive oil, olive tapenade and sundried tomatoes. As an appetizer I had a calamari and shrimp combo on white beans which was delicious; my husband had beef carpaccio which he loved. As an entree I had the seared peppercorn tuna over grilled onions and yellow and green string beans; my husband had zuppe di pesce; both dishes were outstanding. I usually only order tuna when I have sushi and glad I went this route. They serve whole branzino, salmon as well as striped bass along with steak and a lamb 2 ways which I will order next time we go. I knew we had to order dessert just to see if it was as good as the other courses. We got the apple and pear tart with ice cream and they serve biscotti and small cookies on the house. I have to tell you this was a great experience. We had been to Felidia in Manhattan for my b-day many years ago and since the chef formerly worked there, that alone drew me to this spot. Not many restaurants receive an Excellent review by both Newsday and the NY Times.

      Have also heard very good things - just an fyi - it is not owned by the Poll brothers, but by a family that owns an olive oil company and, I think, another restaurant.

        Wow, you certainly did not have the experience we had back in January. And I'm VERY fussy. I always move if they stick me near the kitchen or a noisy large party or even if the a/c is blowing on me. And if the service is poor I always complain when I leave or send food back if it's cold or not cooked enough. I do however have a good report on Blackstone steakhouse in Melville. Went there last night (4/27) for my birthday and I had the antipasto salad and lobster which were both great. My husband had an incredible sushi roll along with filet mignon. Their wine list is extensive and we had two very attentive waiters. It's a very nice looking restaurant and we will surely return. They also own Burton & Doyle and Rothman's.

        We're dining at the new George Martin's in Douglaston on 5/10 -- will post my reviews in two weeks.

          I've been hearing a lot about Blackstone and I have it on my list to try. Thanks

          Also I was at Brooks and Porter in Merrick last week and loved it.
          It's on Merrick Road

            It looks like a hunting lodge and everything came hot and looked very appealing. All steakhouses get the same aged meat, it's just a matter of preference. I think however it would be quite noisy on a Sat. night and you would feel rushed. They also don't have any carpeting which doesn't help matters. I think Sunday or mid-week is the way to go.. I assume Brooks & Porter is a steakhouse too, correct?

                Brooks & Porter is indeed a steakhouse and imho is as good, if not better than Lugers. Had a perfectly cooked porterhouse for 2 , sauteed spinach and huge baked potato. Appps were crabcake and salad special. No room for desert. Service was friendly and polished. BP Martini with blue cheese stuffed olives
                was perfectly made. Had a drink at the beautiful bar before dinner and had to resist eating the whole basket of home made potato chips. We had a table for 2 on the upper level. All 2 tops are along the railing which gives you a nice view of the lower level, no table next to yours and noise level exceptional.
                FYI the rest is located on Merrick Ave. just North of Sunrise Hwy. They also have valet parking.

          wow, i cant believe you had such a good experience, mine was exactly the opposite. the food was nothing worth discussing & the service was just as weak. we sat upstairs and felt like we were in a knights of columbus catering hall. all this for nothing less than 200.00 per couple

            You must have gone on a bad night. Did you go when it first opened 4 months ago? Not that that is an excuse but they might not have had their act together yet. I'm always the first one to send back cold bread or to comment if my food isn't hot enough or if the fan is blowing on me. Our water David couldn't have been more attentive, the bus boys are young and inexperienced but they are just refilling water glasses. I'm pretty fussy about where I eat having come from a family of fabulous cooks. Where else do you like to dine on L.I, for Northern Italian food? We've been to Stresa in Manhasset which hs a regular Sat. night crowd but the food is very good, it's just kind of jappy for my taste. Try Trattoria L'Incontro on Ditmars Blvd. in Astoria for fabulous Italian food. They always have at least 20 or more specials which your watier will recite from memory. It also knocked Piccola Venezia off the No. 1 slot. My attitude is if the bread is good the food usually follows suit. A good restaurant cares about serving hot and interesting tasting bread. L'Incontro serves hot pizza bread with sundried tomato pesto -- it's to die for! I think you will thank me for this recommendation.

              WE DID GO IN THE EARLY STAGES OF IT OPENING BUT I ALSO DONT ACCEPT THAT AS AN EXCUSE UNLESS IT WAS ACOUPLE OF MINOR ISSUES. MAYBE WE WILL TRY IT AGAIN IN THE FUTURE. AS FAR AS OTHER REST'S SOME OF MY CHOICES ARE BRAVO NADER, PICCOLA'S(HUNTINGTON), BAROLAS, MARONIS, CASSIS, MILL POND JUST TO MENTION A FEW.

                The only issue I had with Brivo which was a minor one was that the bread was cold and we waited awhile to get a new basket after reminding the waiter at least 3 times. That is not a deal breaker for me and we will return another night. I looked up the other restaurants you mentioned in my L.I. Zagat. Piccolo and Bravo Nader in Huntington got rave reviews and were both recommended to me very highly so when we plan to be in Suffolk county we will try them. For the most part it's a little far from us just to eat a meal. Thanks for the recs.

                  In Italy (and in France and, increasingly, in Manhattan) the vast majority of good restaurants serve room-temperature bread. Among bakers, it's well known that bread is at its best when it is fresh, but has cooled down from the oven so that its crust and interior are best appreciated. A lot of U.S. restaurants (certainly not all) serve warm bread because it's a way of "re-freshing" bread that has gone stale. I'm not putting down warm bread on its face, but I really don't think you can down-grade a restaurant because the bread isn't warm.

                    If it's fresh it doesn't have to be hot I realize that. But some of the bread at Brivo was ice cold, like it had been defrosted. Believe me I know the difference between fresh and stale bread when I taste it. You weren't dining with me this particular night so it's hard to be objective.

                      EZ Pass, thanks for enlightening me. Ice cold bread is one of my big pet peeves and like debster I also perfer warm bread. Maybe it's because so few retaurants serve really good bread. It's interesting to learn what some European countries' practice is. The best bread I had recently was at Yono's (Albany) and Falai (LES, NYC).

                        I always think that if a restaurant serves an interesting bread basket it's an indication of a great meal to come. Not always but most of the time. It shows that the owners think highly of their patrons. Same with a complimentary dessert or goody bag to take home. The hot rolls with pesto at West End Cafe in Glen Cove are to die for and the pumpernickel raisin nut rolls at Water's Edge in L.I.C. are equally good. To me it does matter. Of course once I have a drink and fill up on bread I might as well get the entree packed to go and get a check!

              I found this thread when I was doing a search of Bravo Nader, just to see if I could find a reason why everyone thinks it's so great, but must chime in on the other issues being discussed. We loved Brivo, and brought our own wine and paid a $25 corkage. We had an excellent meal, and why someone would rather go to Bravo Nader than this, I cannot understand. There is a lot more that goes into a dining experience besides the food. The ambiance at Bravo Nader cannot possibly be compared to Brivo. Bravo Nader is so overcrowded, you feel like you are sitting in your neighbor's lap, and they couldn't fit another person in with a shoe horn. Debster, I really agree with you about Trattoria L'Incontro. We loved the place. The funny thing is that last Saturday night we were going out with plans and planned to go to L'Incontro, then they called to say that they just went to Bravo Nader and thought it was so great, we should go there. Now, we live about half way between the 2, and our friends live in Queens, so geographically, it didn't even make sense. The atmosphere made the whole experience so negative, that I would not go back there if it were the last place on earth. Brivo I definitely would, but am not sure why you would consider Stressa jappy, and not Brivo.

                Robinsilver, I agree with you about Bravo Nader. We've been there twice and both times we were so uncomfortable sitting so tight with our neighbors it felt like one big communal table. Forget trying to get up from your table to go to the bathroom! It's impossible without literally bumping into the people next to you. We too weren't impressed with the food enough to go back.

                Robin, thanks for the review on Bravo Nader, I will take it off my "must go to" list. A friend who grew up in Glen Cove raved about it but I hate to be cramped. That happens in Manhattan more so than L.I. Your negative comments in your last post were about BN not L'Incontro. I was a little confused. I haven't been to Stresa in many years and may try the one in Woodbury rather than go back to Manhasset. I think when I went originally it was the "ladies who lunch" crowd with their husbands all yelling simultaneously. I found Brivo to be quieter and a more refined crowd but it could have just been the night I went. But I will try it again. Thanks for the info. See my recent review of Xavier's X20 in Yonkers -- not to be missed!

                  I could see that. Now, do you ever go to Mateo's in Roslyn. There I could definitely see that. It is embarassing sometimes to see how these women act. And yes, I am sure my wording could have been confusing, but I did mean BN, not L'Incontro. I have started to read what people have said about Xavier's X20. Is that cash only, like the other Xavier's used to be? It would be a good place to meet our friends from New City.

                    Hi Robin. No we paid with a charge card at Xavier's. Next time we go back it will be in the summer for brunch, they may also have outdoor seating. You have a great view of the Hudson from any table. I can't eat at Mateo's or La Parma, garlic doesn't agree with me, I prefer Northern Italian. Tonight we're going to Galleria in Westbury which serves great Northern Italian. Have you ever been there? On a monthly basis, you will probably find us either at Mim's, West End Cafe, Blue Fin (great sushi in Great Neck) or at some Greek restaurant in Astoria. Check out Ethos in Great Neck if you haven't at this point. It's always crowded so make res. way in advance. They may have their liquor license by now. Keep me posted if you check out any new restaurants. Happy dining!

                  If you like West End Cafe, Debster, you will love Maxell's. We have been to Galleria, food is good, but on a Saturday night, plan to wait at least a half hour for your table if you go at 8:00. That also sometimes becomes an issue at Maxell's too, as at many of these restaurants. We have found that if we go at 7 or 7:30 instead, it is not as much of an issue. We also like Coolfish in Syosset. I like having imaginative "new American trending towards Asian". Not sure what to call it, but you all probably know what I mean. I am not a La Parma fan either. Southern Italian for me is take-out from the local pizza place. As far as Galleria goes, by the way, I would say that Benny's, across the street, is better.

                      Is that the restaurant next to Panera off New Hyde Park Road? If that's the same restaurant, all I remember it is a mob scene on Sat. night and you're squeezed in very tight. Sit in front and don't go on a Sat. night unless you go early. If you sit in the back by the kitchen you have to duck when the waiters go by with the plates. I think the food was ok but nothing out of the ordinary. Try Uncle Bacala which you pass on the right before Maxell's.

                        I think when they first got the excellent review, they added tables and it was probably much more crowded, however I have never sat near the kitchen so could not comment. I do agree that Saturday night is not the night to go at 8:00, but if you make a 7:00 reservation you are fine. Friday night is a great night to go though, and of course during the week.

                          Yes I agree that Coolfish is just great -- as are all of Tom Schaudel's restaurants. I still like West End Cafe better than Maxell's because I feel their dishes are very creative and I love the atmosphere. As we have been dining there for many years, we are friendly with the wait staff which makes for a very pleasant experience. We have been to Benny's which was good but never returned. Galleria this past Sat. night about average and the dish I had (red snapper livornese) was so much better at L'Incontro. On a Friday night (especially in the summer) we like Mim's which is usually empty at that time. It seems the entire North Shore is in the Hamptons. If you like sushi try Blue Fin in Great Neck.

                            Debster, we too are regulars for years at Mim's & West End Cafe. I haven't been to Maxells and will try it as we seem to like the same places. While a friend of mine always praises L'Incontro, (and we haven't been there either) we seem to always go to Piccolo Venezia in Astoria when in that area or passing by. I too am not a fan of Ben ny's, it left me cold & unimpressed the one time I went. I do however like Stresa East in Woodbury (haven't been to the Manhasset one).

                              Synergy -- FYI -- Piccola Venezia is very good but L'Incontro blows it away. It also knocked them off the #1 spot as far as Italian restaurants go (check Zagat for both reviews). At PV if you don't go with a large group and are not regulars you will be ignored. Make sure you book a res. @ L'Incontro at least 2 weeks in advance. I just called before for a reservation on 3/29, maybe I will see you there. As far as Il Mulino goes, no meal to me is worth $300 per couple. I would rather buy earrings or a handbag for that amount of money. I know it's supposed to be good but for that kind of $$ I would rather go to Water's Edge in LIC, River Cafe or somewhere elegant not just a place where you are ripped of.

                                If you like Piccolo Venezia try Conti's on Northern in Little Neck. Some former employee of PV opened it, but more importantly the food is really good. It is my favorite local upscale Italian. I did Il Mulino Roslyn twice, once I paid and once my in-laws paid. Each time, other then the cost, it was not memorable. Food was mostly good but as everyone else has written, prices were ridiculous. I ate at the Manhattan branch years ago and was equally unimpressed.

                                    I never tried Il Mulino in the city because at least 5 people, none of which knew each other, told me of experiences there where they got the bill and they were charged for items never ordered. When they brought it to their waiters attention each time the waiter didn't care or just shrugged. How horrible! They all said they were basically treated like cattle there too. I had hoped the Roslyn restaurant would be better, but based on your feedback, I'll skip it altogether.

                                      We went to Il Mulino almost 30 years ago when they first opened in Manhattan. At that time, we thought it to be one of the best restaurants we had ever been to. More recently, we were in Manhattan with friends that went often. It was rather expensive, and not outstanding. We were at the one in Roslyn a number of months ago during the week as guests for a business meeting. We had the assorted pasta appetizer, that I thought was outstanding. I had broiled who fish, that was very good, but that is something you can get in a lot of places, without the attitude. Most of our friends from the area have had bad experiences at Il Mulino.
                                      Debster, as far as sushi goes, try sitting at the sushi bar at Hokkaido. Tony, one of the sushi chefs that we know well, gives us some great stuff, like grilled razor clams, oysters, we have had lobster where the tail is served as sashimi, then they stir fry the rest. They make some unusual rolls that I like, and everything is very fresh. I do agree with you about enjoying the experience so much more when the staff and servers know you. The first time we went to L'Incontro, we went with friends who were regulars. We brought our own wine, and we didn't think our friend tipped enough, so my husband gave a very good tip to both the maitre 'd and the waiter. We were treated like kings the next time we came. We also have been going to Morton's in Great Neck since they opened. I know that most people feel Luger's steaks are better, but we enjoy the experience at Morton's so much more because our our relationship with them, that the steaks seem to taste better. Some nights are better than others, even for us, but we still prefer it.

                                        Thanks Robin, we went to Hokkaido once but will return and sit at the sushi bar. Try Blue Fin in Great Neck as well, it's a hidden gem. The sushi/sashimi combo is very creative and fresh. Speaking of sushi, have you been to Kotobuki in Roslyn next to Besito? I heard it's fabulous (27 in Zagat). I don't think they take reservations so we will go early. I can always have a margarita at Besito's if there's a long wait. As far as steak goes I am not an avid fan of the L.I. steakhouses. I am more of a lamb chop than steak fan and Sparks to me is #1. My husband and I also love Del Frisco's in Manhattan. It's a gorgeous restaurant on two floors with the best wine selection. Uncle Jack's in Bayside makes excellent steaks as well. Have you tried Rothman's in East Norwich or Blackstone's in Huntington? Heard both are excellent and will go on my list. Speaking of L'Incontro the chef/owner usually comes around to greet his guests. We are usually so full from the fabulous pizza bread that we never order dessert, but one time he brought us homemade hazelnut ice cream on the house. This restaurant is a keeper in my book!

                                  I think Tiom Schaudel got too crazy and overexpanded his restaurant empire. He had opened a Star Fish II in Great Neck above Waldbaum's. It was truly a lousy location for a restaurant, it has since closed. I always liked Coolfish and Thom Thom in Wantagh also had an interesting menu. By now it may have closed too, who knows?

                                    I don't think Tom ever had anything to do with Starfish II, nor does he have anything to do with Starfish in Merrick. But u are right, his name gets involved with a lot of resturants. Including Gabrielles in RVC, passion fish in woodbury, which turned into The Mansion at the woodlands, which now has nothing to do with him. I beleive he has no connection Rockfish in Huntington anymore. Also he was involved with Aqua in RVC. Don't know what is status is with that place anymore.

                                      I believe Lemongrass in Roslyn was Tom's first place. Tiny little gem with an open kitchen. When that closed he took along many of his signiture dishes ie, Kung "Pow" Calamari, Red Thai Curry Mussels , The Chocolate Bag etc. which kind of put him on the map. Coolfish is still his and see him there every so often. Jedidiah Hawkin's Inn in Jamesport l think is his latest.

                                        I don't know if Tease in Roslyn was one of his rests. but I don't like the "small plate" concept.

                                        Has anyone been to Blackstone's in Huntington or can recommend any other good restaurants in that town? Thanks.

                                          Tease in Roslyn and Port Washington were both his. Both gone. Seems like alot of people had similar feelings about the "small plate" concept. I was never a huge fan.

                                          Haven't been to Blackstone's but if you try a search you'll find alot of reviews. Same goes for Huntington. A ton of choices.

                                            We went to Blackstones when they first opened, but thought it was too much of a scene. We went because their original manager was the manager at Morton's. We sometimes follow restaurant managers, which is why we went to Del Frisco's in Manhattan. That was managed by someone from California Cafe, which I wish was still there. I wasn't thrilled about the small plates concept, but definitely loved the food itself. Always thought everything I ate was great. I also sometimes see Tom at Coolfish.
                                            As it turns out, we are going to L'Incontro Saturday night. As far as restaurants in Huntington go, there are plenty of them. Has anyone been to Four Food Studio? Piccolo is excellent, and we also like Pannama Hattie's, but their price fixed menu is a little high for Long Island.

                                              Was told Blackstone has excellent salmon and it's a new place to try for steak. Went to Panama Hattie's years ago for my husband's b-day. Remembered the restaurant as being attractive but the food wasn't memorable enough to go back. I heard Maroni's in East Northport is excellent but very expensive. He serves only a few dishes and the restaurant is supposed to be tiny. He beat Bobby Flay on the "meatball" throwdown. I want to try the restaurant Aix across from Prime in Huntington. It's country French and it seems like a very nice menu. Anyone familiar with it? How about a good seafood restaurant in Freeport? I'm in the mood for lobster. I know Jolly Fisherman has good seafood from what I remember from 20 years ago. Any thoughts on this. Have a good time at L'Incontro, we're going 3/29.

                                                For a steakhouse Blackstone was OK....for the money there are others I would prefer. BUT....my wife and I will go back for sushi. And I've heard this from a few others....the sushi is fantastic!
                                                And, Queen, was correct....Tom Schaudel is hired to start up or re-invent a restaurant. He changes the decor, menu and kitchen, plus adds his name to a certain time period. He is been affiliated with many...many establishments. But if you check his website, he only runs a few. My wife and I are just not fans....we have been to several of his places and live bocks from Thom Thom. Just not a fan....especially disappointed with Jedediahs.

                                                  Thanks, I'll stick to what I like best -- Sparks for lamb chops and Del Frisco's for porterhouse. (FYI -- Sparks was rated #1 for sirloin and Peter Luger's #1 for porterhouse). I assume all steakhouses charge about $42 for a steak and all have the same aged meat. It's just a matter of the service you receive when you dine at your favorite one. I used to love Old Homestead downtown. I don't like Ruth Chris because your steak finishes cooking on a sizzling plate of butter. Not my speed!

                                Don't know if any of you noticed, but Brivo is being taken over by the people from Piccolo's in Huntington. We will have to wait and see if it ends up as good as Piccolo's. It will supposed be a mix of Italian and American style.
