Italian, Best Restaurants: Chefs Andrew Ticer and Michael Hudman have another hit on their hands; Porcellino's is the duo's third restaurant on Brookhaven Circle, joining their upscale original, Andrew Michael Italian Kitchen and their superbly casual pizza & comfort food spot Hog & Hominy. Porcellino's has a much different focus and feel; it's open from breakfast through dinner daily, offering a set menu of pastries and coffees, plus fabulous daily specials (kimchee and Siracha-brined fried chicken biscuit, anyone?) at breakfast, with tapas-style offerings at lunch and dinner. There are certainly craft cocktails and plenty of wine options by the glass and bottle, and the idea is to order a bunch of plates to share � although we've been known to order a second round of croissonts at breakfast just for ourselves. The atmosphere at Porcellino's is like the neighborhood cafes that make visiting European villages so charming; there's a friendly staff, a cozy environment, simple metal chairs and dark wooden tables (plus counter seating throughout the space. And Porcellino's has one distinct differentiator from its sister restaurants � it's also a butcher shop filled with delightful meats and charcuterie to take home.
Local Expert Sally Walker Davies Says:
Best for Italian Because: Porcellino's reminds us of our fave European restaurants - small dining space, plenty of small plates, and a casual yet upscale experience.
Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: We love Porcellino's for the fact its personality changes throughout the day - going from bistro breakfast to upscale dinner.
