Casa Brusco in Eastchester
We ate there for the first time last night. When I saw them going in, I thought "great, just what we need, another red sauce joint. Because, you know, we only have 754". And walking up to the tired, stucco exterior, and I was keeping my expectations looooow. They did have valet, but even great-with-kids-but-hope-you-like-canned-mushrooms-on-your-pizza Ciao's accross the street has valet becuase parking is fairly dismal in that area.
Well, fancy! I "nice" Italian/Med restuarant! Chic decor! Professional servers! Sexy wine bar! Well, yipes. My husband and I weren't that hungry, so we only ordered pizza. Hungry or not, we managed to eat every scrap because it was so good. I had the Gamberi, and he had one with Parma, I think? I'm not sure, he inhaled it so fast, I only caught a glimpse. Plus a few glasses of Prosecco...ahhh. There was a sushi grade tuna on the menu I have eyeballed up for next time.
Great bread basket by the way; several fresh baked offerings, with a small bowl ver' ver' spicy olives and roast garlic cloves for spreading on the aforementioned bread.
Look forward to going back. Plus we still need to try the new Taphouse, and Thomas Stone in Tuckahoe.
