From Bresca:

“Chef Ryan Ratino and his team at Bresca are excited to renew dine-in operations!

For the safety of our guests and staff, tables will be socially distanced from each other. In addition, 6 indoor “winter lodge” houses will be set up for couples who want to experience our contemporary bistro in a modified, more intimate, yet sophisticated new setting.

  Reservations require a $20 deposit but no additional charge.

Guests can choose an a la carte or a pre-fix dinner priced at $75 per person (opening menu below).
In addition, Bresca will continue to offer carry-out options and Sunday lunch inspired by European high tea lunches and mid-day meals. Expect indulgences like tiered cake towers with canapes, caviar, champagne, tea sandwiches, leg of lamb roast, suckling pig, and large dessert displays. Lunch is priced at $65 per person.

Guest will be able to complement their experience by adding a stellar new offering, the Homard Lobster a la Presse – the two-clawed European lobster iconic of French cuisine prepared in Chef Ratino’s 19th century duck press – priced at $40 for the entire lobster.

WHEN: Bresca will open with limited seating on Wednesday, November 11th
New dine-in hours will be the following:
Wednesday – Sunday 5:30PM – 9:30PM
Sunday lunch: 11:30AM – 1:30PM
