Expect Italian cuisine at Officine BRERA, a restaurant, bar and patio marked with an industrial decor of brick and concrete walls, exposed metal rafters, pendant lighting and wood-burning oven in the Arts District. The glass-enclosed, open kitchen churns out rustic dishes like grilled octopus, lardo al pepe (cured pork fat), risotto with Mediterranean striped mullet in a fennel-saffron broth, wood-oven roasted pork shank atop polenta and wilted greens or gnocchi tossed in quail ragu. The long bar showcases a menu of Italian wines (with a smattering of French and Spanish labels), a strong spirits list including grappa and amari, craft beer and bitter-focused cocktails like the Negroni or Via Brera (rye, applejack, Cynar, walnut bitters, nutmeg).
