The romantic, dimly lit, yet Euro club feel of B & Co is something you do not easily forget. The food is top-notch Mediterranean which a heavy emphasis on Southern Italian and not only is the quality high--produce is from local farms)--but the portions are generous. The kitchen staff is not afraid to experiment, either. Fresh pasta is made every morning on the premises and the #1 favorite amongst regular customers is the Japanese Sea Urchin Spaghetti dish, served simply with olive oil with a wee bit of garlic and parsley added ($32).

OK, I admit that I personally did not try the Sea Urchin because sometimes I am simply not adventurous enough, LOL! But I fell in love with the more standard fare I tried. I shared an appetizer with my dining partner, Gail—the wonderfully fresh Burrata Pugliese ($24). It’s a huge six ounce piece of the softest homemade Burrata cheese over eight half slices of freshly picked, locally farmed beefsteak tomatoes, drizzled with extra virgin olive oils and sprinkled with shredded pieces of fresh basil. This is the perfect way to start any Southern Mediterranean dinner in my opinion and not surprisingly, it’s a big crowd pleaser on the B & Co. menu!
