Brussels Sprouts Pizza
Brussels sprouts, as they are now known, were grown possibly as early as the 13th century in what is now Belgium, and forerunners to modern Brussels sprouts were likely cultivated in ancient Rome. At OTTO Enoteca e Pizzeria, Brussels sprouts are served two ways. The first, as a shareable appetizer, crispy fried Brussels sprouts are light and flavorful. They are also utilized to create the pizza of the season: the Brussels sprouts pizza, which has mozzarella, prosciutto and preserved lemon as additional toppings.

Parmesan truffle fries
You can be happy with French fries, but fries with truffle and parmesan cheese? Three addicting elements in a side dish to complement a juicy steak at STK makes for a satisfied diner. The truffle parmesan fries are thick blocks of uniformly cut potatoes – Jenga-style, if you will – and just the thing for those who prefer even more heft than thick cut fries.
