Why You'll Love It
More like a dinner party, less like dinner at a restaurant. That’s how you should think of Chef Luisa Silvia’s tasting menu experience at Merlo on Maple. After all, when you’re savoring unbelievable handmade pastas in the dining room of a century-old house, it’s hard not to feel at home.
Reading like a who’s who of imported Italian ingredients, the eight-course tasting menu hints at the complex yet comforting meal to come. Between a bubbly prosecco toast and a biscotti-filled finale, traditional Bolognese tastes fill the hole in your stomach that only comfort food can.
And the grass-fed beef tenderloin with fresh black truffle from Umbria and homemade squash soufflé? It’s like Grandma used to make (only better).
