Primo

Primo Review

A first for this (still) up-and-coming hipster neighborhood, this is a modern Italian restaurant highlighting local ingredients and simplified cooking techniques. But while the name "Primo " may reference the primary ingredients that are the focus of the menu, it could just as easily refer to the prime people-watching spot the restaurant enjoys on the 'hood's main drag. The young funky patrons sip from a selection of 250 wines, and nibble on hand-cut prosciutto, anchovy-and-broccoli gratin, and salads with goat cheese and radicchio. Pastas on offer include artichoke tortelli with marjoram and pecorino, and pappardelle with a chicken ragu'. Seafood mains, like grilled swordfish with a pistachio sauce are also good choices. Those more carnivorous sink their teeth into the provolone and herb-stuffed veal, or braised beef cheeks with potato puree and artichokes. Desserts are tasty if fairly standard, so why not linger over one of the digestivi instead?
