Craving Beef Carpaccio

Morning!

We went to a great show at Stuart Street last night...many extra encores, which left us looking for a place to grab an after 11pm bite. Ended up at Teatro....and a previous poster was right, the calamari was fantastic and perfectly cooked. However, I devoured the beef carpaccio, which was unbelievably scrumptious with crushed crouton-like bread, a drizzle of dijon sauce, arugula , and shaved parm.

Where would you send me for the best beef carpaccio in town?

    I love the carpaccio prep at Olive's - prepared with a gorgonzola rosti cake, carmelized cippoline onions, balsamic drizzle, arugula and shaved parmesan. AND it is massive. The beef is delicious and the other elements provide nice texture and counterpoint. Say what you want about Olives, but I will return for this dish again and again.

      Locke Ober does a fantastic Carpaccio. If that's all you want, eat at the bar with a good drink and get out to save some cash.

            I have also had the carpaccio at Scampo and liked it very much but if I had to pick my favorite it would be Chef Evan Percoco's version at Bokx 109 . It's a delcious quality of raw beef expertly sliced with micro greens, shaved Parmesan, fried capers, olive oil and baby dried red and yellow tomatoes. It's my favorite version.

              scampo makes a great beef carpaccio w/ fresh mozzarella, truffle aioli, some sort of vin santo reduction, etc.

                I'll second the Scampo recommendation. When I was there a few weeks ago, it had smoked sea salt on it....heavenly....

                the best i've had was at bina osteria. all natural beef, from grass-fed cattle. it was to die for.

                they're changing chefs and menus, though, so i'm not sure if it's still available.
