No matter the hour, it’s always time for bubbly at Prosecco, where a complimentary splash of the namesake Italian sparkler starts each meal. This fizzy wine inspires the restaurant’s elegant décor, from creamy pale walls and damask drapes to travertine floors. Sit at the long wooden bar or in one of the well-appointed dining rooms for a second glass chosen from the long list of frizzante and spumante wines.
Hearty dishes spanning the many regions of Italy cut through the heady bubbles. Carpaccio selections include the classic air-dried bresaola as well as whisper-thin seared rare duck breast. Saltimbocca di vitello marries tender veal medallions with crispy Prosciutto di Parma and creamy mozzarella, with hints of sage in the tomato-brandy sauce.- MICHELIN guide inspectors
