Officine Brerain LA’s Arts District is the brainchild of chef Angelo Auriana and restaurateur Matteo Ferdinandi. Taking its name from the Milanese district of Brera, the restaurant’s menu is focused on the type of Northern Italian-style of cuisine eaten there.
Jonathan Gold, Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer for the LA Times, recommends the frisceu, the lardo al pepe, the pisarei e fasö, the bassa padana risotto, the cannelloni with braised beef shank and bechamel, and the Torrone semifreddo with honey and amarena cherries. For Evan, the risotto alla Milanese with bone marrow is “perfection,” and that’s not a word she uses lightly when it comes to Italian food.
