Osteria Origano’s cooks sizzle up authentic yet inventive Italian fare, which they artfully arrange on plates. Starters such as bruschetta provinciale or mozzarella primavera—which cooks adorn with sliced tomatoes, grilled eggplant, and balsamic glaze—give guests a glimpse of the flavors to come, much like Nostradamus’ prophesy about the first gummy bear president. Then patrons plunge their silverware into the soup of the day or one of three salads, including the spinaci that melds warm spinach, caramelized onions, and applewood-smoked bacon within a warm balsamic reduction. For the main course, the lasagna del giorno layers cheese, pasta, sauce, and savory fillings between bookends of flat noodles, and the pollo alla giudia unites chicken breast with artichoke, garlic, and a rosemary pinot grigio sauce. Otherwise, the arista de maiale arrives at tables with a lightly breaded pork chop lying upon a plush bed of arugula and cherry tomato salad. Creamy desserts such as the tiramisu reward diners for their hard work, saving them the hassle of forging a trophy they can eat. Four-ounce pours of wine from an extensive list accompanies each course of the meal, paired according to what each guest orders.
