A Replacement for Boccaccio's?
Is there a new restaurant in Boccaccio's former location? It was a lovely restaurant. Would love to see an excellent, upscale dining establishment, which would feature exquisite Italian food that would shut up the Chowhounds from whining about the red-sauce Little Italy offerings. FoiGras
Much of the Bocaccio crew is now at La Famiglia, near the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus (where Brasserie Tatin was, and before that Jeannier's). I haven't been there yet, so I can't report on the food.
FoiGras, if you're going to rag on others for whining about red-sauce Litte Italy places, perhaps you should cut down a bit on the whining about Cinghiale. :-)
I have never been a fan of Bocaccio. I must admit that on an earlier visit several years ago it suffered from my comparison to both Maestro and Laboratorio which I felt were America's two best Italian restaurants. As for "red sauce" I once wrote this about Chef Vola's in Atlantic City: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/473826
I wouldn't even mention Bocaccio in the same sentence.
