New BYOB Restaurant in Spring House

  • j

the chef from san marco is opening up the closed mina cucina space in a couple weeks. will be called po le cucina. i have always heard food at san marco was some of the best around, and now BYOB should make this place a winner. maybe if there is interest, someone that knows how to arrange a group chowhound dinner could do so. for more info:

      I have never been a fan of San Marco either. I love a good BYOB. Hopefully, this new restaurant will not be reminiscent of SM.

    2. Thanks for this news! Always good to have another BYOB in the area and let's hope that the food is good.

            Looking forward to hearing your views.

            1. The food was great. Had an entre sized seafood risotto to share as a starter, rice could have been cooked a little more creamier, seafood was scallop shrimp, muscles , and clams. All were fresh and sweet. Wife had grilled salmon, I had rack of lamb. Lamb was medium rare and excellent. Wife loved salmon. Each had veggies and potatoes . Also had side of spinach/garlic and pene fradivalo. Service excellent, chef came out to check on overall experience
              Would definitely go back.
