What do you expect from a fine Italian restaurant? A delicious offering of breads and cheese? A superior wine list and elegant goblets? Do you prefer an atmosphere as tempting as the menu? True to the intimate nature of the Blakely Hotel, its outstanding restaurant-- Abboccato Ristorante offers all of this in a romantic and comfortable environment that puts you at ease for a mouth-watering, belt-loosening feast. The decorative touches such as the clay colored brick walls on one side and luxuriously upholstered ones on the other compliment an equally divine meal. Sip on a strawberry rhubarb bellini or ask one of the helpful servers to assist you in picking the perfect wine from the extensive list. Inspired chef, Jake Addeo, has created such fantasies as pasta with Valrona chocolate served with morel mushrooms, white asparagus and parmesan areggiano finished with Umbrian black summer truffles. Reluctant to leave such an intoxicating evening? Spend the night in The Blakely's beautiful penthouse, complete with a balcony and an enchanting view.
