MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Tosca pulls off a bit of a magic trick, as you’d never suspect that this gem was hiding in plain sight. Shielded by an unassuming façade, it's more than easy to walk right by. But what a shame that would be as the elegant dining room, awash in soft cream and gray tones and flowing drapes, pulls off a few throwbacks (a carpet!) with aplomb. Lunch brings in an army of suits to match those starched white tablecloths and deals are done over platters of house-made pasta. Trevigiana, a salad tossing bright radicchio with crispy hen of the woods mushrooms, frico friulano and a piquant black truffle dressing, shows restraint and focus; while lobster risotto with its sweet tomato bisque and tender Maine lobster meat exudes a harmony of decadent flavors.
