This summer, Bibiana is debuting a vegetarian tasting menu called ‘Il Gardino’, featuring local produce and changing items as the season progresses. The current menu sounds pretty tasty, and at $48 for four courses, the price is also right.
The current menu offers an onion tart or Tuscan tomato soup to start, a whole roasted baby cauliflower (you’ve been eyeing these at the farmers’ market too, haven’t you?) or a roasted eggplant melanzane to follow, and a main course of either pasta with zucchini and squash blossoms or chanterelle risotto. Dessert keeps to the garden theme, focusing on fruit with a mixed berry salad with lychee sorbet or a cherry crumble with gelato.
We’ve been looking for an excuse to go back after our less-than-perfect Restaurant Week experience last summer, and this might be it!
