It’s been almost a year since Bevacco opened and lifted the “Corner of Cranberry” curse that has haunted many eateries at 60 Henry Street for years. The Wall Street Journal published a short piece on the restaurant this weekend:
WSJ: The residential brownstone haven of Brooklyn Heights is an odd place for a semi-traditional Italian restaurant serving rich, hearty portions for lunch, but restaurateur Peter Sclafani (Bar Tano, Provini, Bar Toto) is betting on good foot traffic from hungry lawyers on break from the courthouses a few blocks away.
Mr. Sclafani’s newest restaurant, Bevacco, is classic and classy, with a marble-faced facade, and a low-lit interior full of dark wood, white tile and heavy stone surfaces that amplify the 1920s-era jazz piped in over the speakers.
The food, created by chef Antonio Morichini, a Roman transplanted to Queens by his wife’s job at the United Nations, is pleasingly offbeat.
