epicure_Brio Tuscan Grille_may12


The first thing you notice when you enter the new Brio Tuscan Grille is the size of it— a sprawling 7,200-square-foot space at the corner of Pratt and Calvert. The feel is corporate but comfortable— arched colonnades, hardwood Cypress floors, marble, Venetian plaster and massive wrought-iron chandeliers overhead. Just inside the front door is a lively bar area that opens onto the front patio, which houses an indoor/outdoor lounge and al fresco seating for another 68 guests. Bar patrons can enjoy a $5 specialty cocktail selection on Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to close, and the value-priced $2.95 Tuscan Taster bar menu, with items like shrimp cocktail, the Brio Bistecca mini burger, bruscetta and signature flatbreads. In the main dining room, expect large servings of Tuscan/Italian classics: a lengthy menu of pastas, risottos, seafood, veal, chicken and beef dishes, sure to satisfy. 100 E. Pratt St., 410-637-3440
