I'm not a food writer, so I don't have the words to describe the incredible meal we had at Betto last night. I have been a fan of all of this team's restaurants (Lupa, Inoteca, Corsino) and was absolutely thrilled to see something in Brooklyn of that calibre. Everything about the restaurant is just bad-ass pro - but this one has a nice Brooklyn ease to it. Not to mention a beautiful space. I'll be back for the pork and the seabass asap.

I wanted to take my girlfriend out on a date to the new La Esquina, but after reading very mixed (on the verge of horrible) reviews, thought we'd try one of the other Manhattan imports over the last few months. I had tried Inoteca on the LES and enjoyed so thought to give Betto a shot. Good looking restaurant, kind of rustic italian meets wine cellar meets williamsburg modern. There is are 5 or 6 tables in the front (the entire wall is open in the summer letting in a nice evening breeze) and steps leading up to what seems to be the main dining room (bar, long tables, etc.) The menu is set up with small plates, charcuterie and cheeses and two larger dish specials that come from whole animals (that night the specials were suckling pig and sea bass, both were $28 per person). We decided to stick with small plates, starting with the mixed pickled vegetables, the fried risotto balls, and the plum/burratta salad. The pickled vegetables were good, not amazing, but a good way to start the meal. The risotto balls were excellent, perfectly fried and with a nice sharp parmesan cheese kick. The star of the night was the plum/burratta salad: everything tasted so amazingly fresh. The burratta was silky smooth, it's flavors melting perfectly with the seared plum. We ordered two more dishes: the flap steak and the radicchio/lardo salad. Flap steak was said to be cooked medium rare, but looked closer to rare. I don't mind this and found the thinly sliced beef to have a nicely charred crust and tender flesh. The radicchio salad was the only dish to miss the mark. It was too bitter, and though the lardo dipped in the white bean puree was good, overall its flavors don't come together in the way you'd expect. I don't really know wine so just ordered a carafe of one of the cheapest reds, a pinot noir. Even I, who usually can't tell the difference in wines, could tell this one wasn't great, but it didn't really bother me. A perfectly filling meal came out to about $80 with tax and tip, which is about what I'd expect (major bonus points for accepting credit cards!). I could see this place being 25% more expensive in Manhattan so overall its a decent value.
