MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
For a modern take on Northern Italian cooking, Chef Roberto Deiaco, of East 12th Osteria and Armani Ristorante fame, is back with Avena. The mood here is fuss-free—a sentiment that’s echoed by the white and marble décor. But what the atmosphere lacks in flavor, the food makes up for in leaps and bounds. The feast begins with the bread basket and its addictive carta di musica, a tissue-thin flatbread brushed with butter and sprinkled with salt and rosemary to represent musical notes. Those familiar with the chef's talents know that fresh pasta reigns supreme, and the ravioli filled with creamy ricotta and quail egg yolk doesn't disappoint. For the carnivore crowd, Colorado lamb loin with a Castelveltrano olive crust is worthy of a standing ovation.
