Glass Hostaria

Glass Hostaria Review

After 14 years in Austin, Texas, Glass chef Cristina Bowerman returned to Rome to reconnect with her Italian roots. Her cooking is as innovative as the building she works in—which has received numerous recognitions for its architecture and design since opening in 2004—but Bowerman still abides by some cardinal Italian kitchen rules, such as the use of fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. The menu changes frequently, but with an impassioned sense for detail, taste, and presentation, Bowerman comes up with dishes like tagliatelle pasta with eggplant, prunes and ricotta affumicata; scallops with pistachio cream and seasonal mushrooms; and for dessert, a passion fruit crema cotta (frozen custard) with lychees, cornbread and popcorn granita. Need help pairing your wine? Glass offers more than 600 labels for interested oenophiles.
