Fiatto

Fiatto is a new casual Italian-American restaurant with seasonally-inspired dishes. Executive chef Kylil Henson previously worked at Flora Street Café, French Laundry (Yountville, CA), DBGB Kitchen and Bar (Washington, D.C.), and Coque (Madrid, Spain).

The décor has a coastal vibe with bright pops of color, natural wood, and a flood of natural light with floor-to-ceiling windows. The menu here changes with the season and just about everything, including the pasta and bread is made in-house.

Fiatto's signature cocktail is the Queen Bee, a refreshing gin-based cocktail with herbal tea, honey and lemon served in a bee-shaped glass with a spray of tiny white flowers for garnish. The Cosmo Royale ($12) is another great cocktail option.

For starters, try the caprese and focaccia. The caprese has small, colorful sliced tomatoes, burrata imported from Italy, fresh basil and aged balsamic. The burrata is creamy on the inside and a nice firm texture on the outside that spreads beautifully on a piece of their homemade focaccia. The focaccia is about 6-inches in diameter; large enough to share between two people without ruining your appetite from carb overload.

For a main entrée, the trout saltimbocca was served with 3-4 pieces of filleted trout rolled and wrapped with prosciutto and served with cippolini onions and mushrooms in a marsala sauce. Save room for cannelloni.
