BRIO Tuscan Grille on Piedmont Row recently rebranded to BRIO Coastal Bar & Kitchen. Here’s a quick tour through the new menu.
Executive chef Michael Siegman explained that the organization is implementing these rebrands (Charlotte’s BRIO is one of five already converted) to bring a “lighter, fresher menu” to the table as well as a less corporate, more friendly atmosphere.
The menu still consists of some classic favorites but has been cut down from 100 to around 40 items.
At BRIO, you’ll still get that local vibe. All ingredients are prepped fresh daily in-house (including homemade pasta) and their seafood is locally sourced.
I tried a handful of items and thoroughly enjoyed every single one (spoiler: the beets, cauliflower, and grilled salmon were my faves). Take a look.
House-made infusions (Spicy Mango Tequila, Pineapple Vodka, Honey Vanilla Bourbon)
Roasted Beets & Whipped Feta ($9.50)
Buffalo Cauliflower ($11.50)
Crispy Calamari ($12)
Spicy Mango Margarita, Tropical Cosmo, Honey Bourbon Manhattan
Shaved Vegetable Salad ($11.50) and Brussels Sprout Salad ($11.50, back)
Linguine Carbonara ($16)
Grilled Salmon ($20)
F.T.C. (Flat Top Chicken, $20.50)
Caramel Mascarpone Cheesecake ($8)
Peanut Butter Pie ($7)
So, now that you’re starving…
