After evenings fusing Italian and French cuisine into a collection of tapas, the chefs at Gusto Vino & Caffé rise with the sun to create elegant, international breakfasts. The Greek breakfast’s double espresso rouses taste buds before they dive into hummus, tzatziki, feta cheese, and black olives heaped onto toast with Poseidon’s trident. French breakfasts arrive with coffee or hot chocolate to compliment croissants—plain or stuffed with chocolate or almond filling—and bread covered with butter or jam. Toasts or Italian focaccia sing backup vocals for a trio of eggs trimmed with italian sausage or bacon and roasted potatoes in the Italian breakfast. Diners sip mimosas from the hardwood bar, or send text messages via smoke signals to each other in the whimsical interior, as daylight pours through light-green curtains and spills onto the white couch’s hot-pink pillows. Eclectically matched plush chairs crowd around the wooden tables, which are set with magenta, orange, and blue linens.
Gusto Bistro's owners and pastry chef hail from Paris, and they incorporate regional French influences from Provence and Brittany into their Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Dishes are served "in a setting that's less about 'dinner' and more about sitting around shooting the breeze with your mouth really full" according to Thrillist. To jumpstart conversations, the bartenders pour glasses of wine from a list that emphasizes Italian regions and varietals and includes a collection of French and New World bottles. In the kitchen, chefs artfully decorate small plates with arrangements of seasonal fruits and vegetables, French cheeses, or beef carpaccio. Pastry chef Manuel Bengochea brings meals to a sweet finish with a wide variety of homemade French desserts.
Around the dining room, brushed-nickel lamps and black-and-white-tiled floors create a sleek, modern look, while lime-green drapes and a kaleidoscopic assortment of cushions add splashes of color. Large, decorative wine labels hang above the bottle-lined shelves, warning diners about the walls' sulfite content.
