At Tirovino Wine Bar, chefs complement flights of red and white wines with a menu of Italian small plates and entrees peppered with the flavors of fresh lemon, tomato, and basil. Deal a hand of Go Fish with a deck of tuna tartare shuffled among crispy rice, avocado, and lemon chives or draw the all-powerful Rules of Poker card with the arancini’s braised beef, green peas, and mozzarella cheese. Entrees such as the chitarra carbonara’s pancetta tossed with whipped eggs and parmesan offer plenty of matches for the extensive wine list, whose options range from a Tuscan sangiovese to a Venetian pinot-grigio-verduzzo blend. Bread touches down on tables still hot from the oven.
The menu’s innovative blend of old and new is reflected in the elegant simplicity of Tirovino’s décor, steeped in rich, wood tones, exposed brick, and simple steel-framed seating. In a window-side lounge, a pair of plump, oversized armchairs discreetly argues over who gets to lick the plates, and the horizontal cushions lining the wall recall the traditional Roman posture for consuming grapes.
