As good as it gets does not describe our dining experience at Sbraga. So, my husband had made reservations for dinner using OpenTable and they were inadvertently cancelled by the restaurant. So, we called, but realized they weren't opening until 5, so I tweeted them-- the staff called back a few hours later and offered us a seat at the Chef's Counter. We were thrilled and I was impressed with how they reacted to the situation. We arrived about 5-10 minutes early for our 8pm reservation. They offered us a seat at the bar while we waited for our seats at the Counter (There are only 6!). Our seats were ready with a minimum wait. Service- AMAZING. Every person we encountered was courteous, well-informed, and offered exemplary service. In fact, sitting at the counter, you can tell dinner service is run like a well-orchestrated machine. Experience- The Chef's Counter has to be the best seats in the house- I highly recommend everyone sit there if you can. Our end seats were next to the heat lamps so it started off a bit warm, but within 5 minutes I didn't notice it anymore. What I did notice was the detail that goes into each dish. PLUS, added bonus, Chef Kevin was in tonight so we got to see him in action. Now the food- we had the spring 2014 menu with beverage pairings and were wow'ed. We are self-proclaimed foodies and Top Chef fans so we had high expectations. Sbraga exceeded them. First course- I had the potato ceviche. It was a light and incredibly impactful in taste course that tasted like the best potato salad you ever had. My husband at the foie gras soup...OMG- it was rich and everything you think it would be, I couldn't get enough of it. There were these little crunchies in there...to die for. Plus it paired perfectly with the Gewurztraminer they paired it with. Second Course- I had the escargot with gnocchi. The gnocchi was a little too al dente for my liking, but the overall flavor of the dish was good- once again, very rich, but since I only had a bite or two of soup, it was okay. My husband had the octopus- it was spicy with a great char. We both really enjoyed it. Third Course- A Stand-out! My husband had the NY Strip Steak with Kale and 63 degree egg. The flavors were phenomenal-- The steak was a perfect medium rare, the kale and egg were so complimentary of each other. A true winner of a meal. But, the star was the Rigatoni with Lamb. The lamb was sprinkled over the top, almost like bacon bits, but tasted so great. I could not get enough. I was so full but wanted to finish my dish desperately. 4th Course/Dessert- We had the Coffee Cake (the coffee ice cream was delicious) and the key lime pie (perfectly tart). We didn't finish our desserts. Not because they weren't amazing but because we were so full! This was an experience and evening fit for foodies and simply amazing. Needless to say we highly recommend Sbraga to everyone out there.

Fantastic eatery with a solid bar serving up inventive originals alongside the standards. Top Chef Sbraga handles modern American cuisine with flair and ease in this cozy dining room right on the Avenue of the Arts.

Thoughtful, creative menu. Foie gras soup very distinctive and more varied flavors than expected. Octopus (sepia) and pork amazing. Escargot was disappointing though (says was bitter and didn't make the escargot shine). Fantastic desserts. Cherries with schezuan ice cream was incredible. Balanced and flavorful. Great staff and service as well.

Great food two of us ordered three sets of pre-fixe choices to create a tasting menu. All food was excellent, foie gras soup was amazing for starter. There was a nice variety of choices for each course. Escargot was top for the second, lamb belly top for the third. Side note the waygu with poached egg is not worth the supp fee in our opinion, good but lost flavor of the steak. Overall this Top Chef contestant won our vote with great service & foo

A bit pricy but very good service and wonderful tasty food and zesty drinks. Book a table in advance.
