Italy’s rich culinary tradition has indelibly inspired American institutions, from the legal marriage of macaroni and cheese to the first document autographed in marinara sauce. Celebrate culinary contributions from the boot-heeled country with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of upscale Italian dining at Bria Bistro, located along Highway 100.
Bria Bistro's dinner menu provides plenty of targets for which cuisine duelists can aim their dinette weaponry. Take the initiative with one of Bria Bistro's primi selections, such as PEI mussels sautéed in white wine ($9) or the Arincini, a red-pepper risotto filled with goat cheese simmering in marinara sauce and flanked by red onions, fennel, and pear slaw ($7). House specialties such as the traditional veal saltimbocca (veal with prosciutto, spinach, and mozzarella-drizzled mushroom marsala jus over rosemary new potatoes, $24) and chicken piccata (scallopine of chicken, artichoke hearts, wood-fired tomatoes blanketed by lemon-caper sauce over linguine, $19) dominate the main course. If a diner fears that ordering salmon over roasted-red-pepper risotto cake ($20) will offend the sensibilities of grizzly chefs, Bria Bistro's hearty vegetarian options include pappardelle with mushrooms, leeks, goat cheese, and white truffle oil ($15), fettuccine alfredo ($15), and more.
Bria Bistro's dining atmosphere combines classic elegance with a lively neighborhood vibe, where diners can comfortably keep their dinner from dying alone by match-making meals to one of the many imported Italian wines on Bria's wine list. Sip from a glass of high-flying Acrobat pinot noir ($14), a ground-dwelling LaTerre chardonnay ($7), or a ground-swelling bottle of Earthquake zinfandel ($60). ,
- Everything is done to perfection including the service and atmosphere. – Southern Chowhounds!, Southern Cookin' Makes Ya Good Lookin'!
- Where Brio [sic] shows real promise is in the playful creativity that enlivens the menu. That's something that can't be taught, and it's an attribute that makes Brio [sic] worth revisiting to see what whimsical gestures will emerge in the seasonally shifting repertoire. – Carrington Fox, Nashville Weekly
Bria Bistro Italiano
The founder of Bria Bistro Italiano teamed up with an executive chef to create a menu of Italian fare with seasonal ingredients. In the kitchen, chefs bake Italian favorites, such as lasagna stuffed with ricotta cheese, and prepare eggplant parmesan with housemade mozzarella and fire-roasted red peppers. Personal culinary flair is added by providing apricot-chutney accents, drizzles of white-truffle oil, and sides of herbed polenta fries. Servers pour glasses of wine from the extensive wine list to pair with entrees, including everything from bold reds to floral whites as crisp as a freshly dry-cleaned apple.
