Bar Bricco

Can you tell we like Bar Bricco? With a beautiful room, top-notch Italian food and attentive yet discreet service, it’s hard to beat. It’s also hard to make a decision about which bread, meat, cheese or pasta dish to indulge in at this vibrant wine bar, so don’t decide — bring some friends and order a few plates. I mean, I like the idea of eating the decadent cheese plate by myself — and the black truffle honey — but it’s better to share so you can sample a bit of every delectable dish. If I had to choose, the perfectly runny egg yolk and ricotta raviolio, perfect pockets of agnolotti and butter-smooth beef carpaccio are good bets. Everything on the menu is share-able, and best eaten with a round of drinks or bottle of wine. On Sundays, pop in for aperitivi drinks and complimentary spuntini. —Breanna Mroczek

Cibo Bistro

The home-spun pastas, with delectable fillings and sauces that include rabbit, goose and veal cheeks, are a great sharing item, as are the cheese plates and good-as-a-main Brussels sprouts. But the real test of if you’re a generous person or not is the zeppole, light-as-air doughnuts with limoncello and mascarpone cheese. If you can actually share those, you’re a better person than me. —Steven Sandor

Deciding which plates to share from Bündok’s menu is almost like crafting your own culinary adventure. Opt for decadent fried chicken skins, livened up with a tang of honey mustard, and follow it with a light, citrus-packed sea bream crudo. Balance the carnivorous punch of beef tartare with a tartine, topped with crisp apple slices, creamy Oka cheese and honey. Pair it with a cocktail or glass of wine and you’ve got a stellar experience on your hands. —Adrianna MacPherson
