AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): Every time I visit Frasca, the staff members go out of their way to make everyone feel special. The unique cuisine is simple, yet complex in flavor.
Translated as 'branch' in Italian, Frasca evokes a traditional neighborhood gathering spot in Italy's Friuli-Venezia Giulia region, where a branch typically marks the entrance to one of its dining and socializing hubs. On Monday, your only option is the prix fixe wine tasting menu, which you can order with or without pairings, but on other days, a seasonal menu nudges you toward sampling four small-portioned courses (although you may order fewer or more). Elegant, minimalist decor adorns the dining room, where the knowledgeable staff answers your questions and follows through with efficient service. The restaurant works with local purveyors to serve fresh, organic creations. Award-winning master sommelier Bobby Stuckey, one of the owners, deftly navigates you through the extensive wine menu, while the other owner, award-winning chef Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson, plies you with delicious and simply presented food.
