“Manfredi says that Alessandro Pavoni’s Brescia-inspired cooking “reminds me of the food of my childhood. Sciatt’, an everyday snack in Lombardy’s Valtellina, is simply fontina cheese coated in a buckwheat and grappa batter and fried till crisp and golden.” Pavoni’s bistro is named after another of Manfredi’s childhood favorites: Spiedo is a combination of spit-roasted meats served with polenta. With natural light, a timber canopy, and a central fig tree, the dining room has an airy, piazza-like feel. No time for a sit-down meal? Grab a sciatt’ (paired with a chicory-like radicchio) at the stuzzi bar.
