Cibo Trattoria and UVA Wine & Cocktail Bar recently refreshed their team with General Manager Mark Taylor and Executive Chef Jonathan Chovancek and Chef de Cuisine Josh Gonneau alongside Bar Manager Sabrine Dhaliwal. This fresh new take in the cucina offers new menu delicacies with comfort dishes.
It’s been a while since we’ve last visited Cibo and I loved seeing the subtle transformations of a brighter and more airy space.
- albacore tuna crudo [gf]: shaved fennel, pickled radish, orvieto olive oil
- beef carpaccio 16: tellicherry black pepper seared, confit tomatoes, sicilian capers, pickles, mustard aioli
- Burrata and prosciutto di parma: served with warm focaccia, sourdough, tuscan olive oil, parmesan passatina di ceci
Chitarra Alla Vongole: stinging nettle pesto, early spring vegetables and clams. This was one of my favorite and stinging nettle is such a classic Italian recipe.
Ricotta Gnocchetti: braised oxtail, grilled mushrooms, san marzano tomatoes. Such a hearty and comforting pasta dish. Perfect for any cloudy rainy day!
Vincisgrassi al Forno: baked abruzzo heritage durum wheat pasta, grilled portobello, spicy tomatoes, black pepper goat cheese cream. And its vegetarian friendly too!
Triangle Island Halibut: buttermilk polenta, grilled asparagus
Organic Creme Fraiche Panna Cotta: caramelized apples, burnt honey caramel, amaretti
Tiramisu “Cibo”: deconstructed tiramisu with molten chocolate brownie, marsala and espresso bitters
